POLICE in Bridgeport, Pa., responded to Kelly's home in the Philadelphia area at 11:03 a.m. after receiving a 911 call placed from Kelly's home.

The other person involved in the incident is Andrea Peterson, Kelly's former girlfriend.

Bridgeport Police Sgt. John Cane said when officers arrived at Kelly's home, they found Peterson outside on the front steps.

"When the officers got there, she said that Mike Kelly had hit her," Cane said. "She showed us her neck, which was red, she had a small cut on her knuckle, and she had a small abrasion or some type of cut on her lip."

Cane said that Kelly told police that Peterson had come to his house to pick up her personal belongings.

"She confronted him in an upstairs bedroom and an argument broke out and it turned physical," Cane said of the explanation offered by Kelly.

"He grabbed her. She ended up hitting him in the face, according to him -- and he had some evidence of being hit there, too -- and he grabbed her and pushed her to get her out of the house."

Kelly had some bruising on his face, police said. Cane said Peterson is not facing any charges.

A criminal records check revealed that Kelly had no previous convictions, Cane said.

An individual familiar with Kelly and Peterson said the two had been a couple for about 41/2 years, adding they formally broke up about two weeks ago.

"She was over there (this morning) getting her stuff when she found a letter from another woman," the individual told the Free Press.

Kelly made bail and was released. He is to appear in court on Dec. 23.
