An Texas woman is accused of assaulting an Austin man with a guitar, leaving him with a gash over his left eye.
The 56-year-old woman faces tentative charges of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic assault.
The 53-year-old male victim told police that the woman got angry about something on Friday night and threatened to smash a large-screen TV with the six-string acoustic guitar.
The man says she began swinging the guitar like a baseball bat. When the man tried to intervene, the guitar caught him on the forehead.
The police report says the man claims the strike “was no accident.”
When police asked the woman why she did it, she replied, “Because I’ve been drinking.”
