Olympic gold-medalist skier Picabo Street told police her father attacked her during a fight that led Utah authorities to charge her with domestic violence and assault, according to a 911 call recording released Thursday.
Idaho native Picabo Street can be heard on the recording saying the fight started after her dad, Roland Street, bumped his car into her house in snowy weather.
“He got his hands on me and I put him down the stairs,” she tells the dispatcher Dec. 23.
A woman who she refers to as mom is audible in the background disputing that version of what happened.

“I saw what you did to him,” the woman says.
“Oh my God, are you kidding me? He scratched me on my face,” Picabo Street replies.
Prosecutors say an investigation found Picabo Street was the primary aggressor. She’s accused of throwing her 76-year-old father down the stairs and locking him in the basement.
Picabo Street says on the recording that she tried to help dig out her parents’ car so they could use hers, but he “freaks out on me, he always calls me all kinds of names, whatever, tells me I’m a freak.”
Roland Street has not been charged in the fight.
Roland Street told police his daughter got angry and started yelling after he hit the house while trying to leave, documents show. He said the physical altercation broke out after they re-entered the house and she pushed him down two flights of stairs. Police saw cuts on Roland Street’s elbow and neck.
