A woman in Crestview, Florida, who said her husband was cheating on her was arrested after she allegedly jumped on his back and forced his mouth apart with her fingers.
On Aug. 30 two Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence about a disturbance.
Once there they interviewed a husband and wife, the apparent source of the disturbance.
The man said he’d been involved in an argument with his wife over a text message.
He came at about 8:30 that night and the argument continued, with his wife following him around the house, yelling in his face.
While in the bedroom, she allegedly jumped on his back and put her arm around his neck.
He removed her arm, but then she grabbed him from behind and placed her fingers in his mouth, pulling his mouth apart, the arrest report indicated.
This was said to have caused a small cut in his mouth.
The woman told deputies she had found out her husband was cheating on her and she’d told him not to come home.
As they argued, somehow her fingers “ended up in his mouth,” the deputy wrote.

A New Zealand man who threw an ostrich egg at his wife because her pet pig had damaged his tools has been sent to jail.
4-year-old Phillip Marau Glanville Russell lost his temper when he discovered that the pig had caused $2500 of damage to his saw.
Russell was sentenced to six months’ jail when he appeared in Hastings District Court yesterday, after earlier pleading guilty to charges including assault using an ostrich egg as a weapon.
He picked an argument with his wife of 20 years when she came home to their rural Waipawa property with their 9-year-old child in early July. He swore at her before spitting at her four or five times.
He then grabbed a large ostrich egg from the kitchen table and threw it at her with force. The heavy egg hit her in the chest, causing bruising.
His lawyer, Antony Willis, said Russell had asked his wife repeatedly to keep the pig under control because it had damaged their house, their neighbour’s house and council property.
But his wife insisted it should be given free range.
The offending occurred while Russell was subject to a sentence of supervision.
He has been in custody since appearing in court on July 10.
Police have arrested a South Carolina public works commissioner after they say he assaulted his wife with a key lime pie.
Police were called to the home of 51-year-old Perry Williams after his wife called 911 Saturday night.
They observed that Williams’ wife had a bloody nose, a scratch on her face, and was covered in key lime pie.
She told them that she had accidentally dropped some pie on her husband as they argued over whether or not key lime pie was a fruit.
In response, she says he became angry and threw the pie in her face.
She also told officers that this isn’t the first time her husband has acted violent towards her, it was just the first time she had ever reported it.
After giving police her statement, the woman said she did not want to press charges against her husband. The officers informed her that because they observed injuries, her deciding not to press charges didn’t matter, her husband would be charged by the state.
Upon hearing this, Williams’ wife ripped up the statement she made to police and repeatedly stated her calling the police had been a mistake.
Williams has been charged with criminal domestic violence and turned himself in Tuesday night.
He was released from jail on bond.

Police said that she then started another fire on the bed that quickly spread to the rest of the bedroom.
Clothes and a lampshade caught on fire at their home on Howell St.
Rosenbaum received minor burns to her hand and clothing and eventually called 911 when the fire got too large, the complaint said.
Police said she admitted to a paramedic and investigators that she started the fire and her husband was on or near the property during the incident.
Firefighters extinguished the fire upon their arrival shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday morning.
Officials said on Sunday that the fire caused approximately $5,000 in damage to the structure and contents.

Peter Lizon from West Virginia is facing charges after allegedly holding his wife hostage for 10 years and brutally beating her.
Lizon, of Leroy, has been charged with malicious wounding.
A woman staying at the Family Crisis Intervention Center in Parkersburg had met a woman that was brutally beaten by her husband and reported it to police.
The woman, in an interview with investigators, described meeting Lizon’s wife while staying at the shelter in Parkersburg.
She described his wife as “gaunt and filthy,” and told investigators that she spent the entire night talking with Lizon’s wife during her stay.
During the conversation, according to the criminal complaint, Lizon’s wife told the woman that her husband had kept her chained up with metal padlocks and chains for about 10 years.
The woman noticed scar tissue on the victim’s hands and ankles.
Lizon’s wife allegedly told the woman that the scars were from the chains tearing into her skin.
After investigators finished the interview with the woman they were able to obtain a warrant to gain more information from the shelter in which the women stayed.
According to the complaint, 45 photos were turned over to investigators showing the injuries that had been described to them.
“This is a case that is tenfold of what our average domestic is and maybe more than that. It comes down to what appears to be slavery and torture, it seems to be the aspects of this case,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Tony Boggs said.
On July 2, according to the complaint, Lizon took his wife and their child to return a roto-tiller attachment that he had rented from a local store.
While returning the equipment, Lizon’s wife was able to walk away from the truck and hide in a local Zumba dance facility.
Lizon left with their child and his wife was able to find a ride to the shelter in Parkersburg.
Lizon is being held in the South Central Regional Jail in lieu of $300,000 bail.

34-year-old Kenneth Amaya Jr. from California died in a car crash shortly after running over his wife.
Amaya Jr. and his wife were arguing outside of their GMC Yukon after pulling over to the side of the road. Shortly after, Amaya jumped back into the SUV and drove away, running over his wife in the process.
She was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition with extensive injuries but was able to tell police who had run her over.
Police believed Amaya had attempted to kill his wife and immediately began searching for him.
They didn’t have to search for too long, and he didn’t put up much of a fight, as he was found dead off of Interstate 15.
The California Highway Patrol says Amaya was speeding down the interstate when he lost control of the vehicle. He veered to the right and crashed into a metal guardrail.
It continued through the barrier and went rolling down a steep embankment.
Amaya was not wearing a seat belt and suffered fatal injuries after being ejected from the vehicle.
Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the accident.
