The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Ursula Montano claims 51-year-old Donald Ortega, her manager, pushed her and punched in the face after a dispute over her work performance on Aug. 28.

She told police he also kept her from using her computer and phones to reach Ortega's boss before the alleged punch.

A police report noted she had a bruise and scratch marks.

Ortega denied most of Montano's accusations in phone interview with the newspaper Thursday, but said he did turn off her computer. He was placed on paid leave after the incident.

As of Thursday, no charges were filed against him.
