Friends With Benefits and Domestic Violence

The Volokh Conspiracy has a post dealing with an interesting fact pattern. See Friends with Occasional Benefits, and What Happens If You Beat Them Up

I really wonder if this was the intent of the Alaska legislature. Lets say a couple of Frat guys "mess around" with each other a couple of times in College. They then get into a typical College age friend fight or perhaps even less. Is that enough to trigger Domestic Violence laws that have many components that include at times prohibitions on owning a firearm?

It would be interesting to see on the trial court level how perhaps the Courts have handled this issue if it was brought up.
