CRESTVIEW — A woman did not take the issue of infidelity very well and whacked the alleged cheater over the eye with a flashlight, lawmen say.

On June 24 a Crestview police officer was summoned to an undisclosed location to check out a report of a battery. The officer spoke with the apparent victim, who had blood on his face and shirt. He said a 22-year-old woman hit him over his left eye with a flashlight.

The officer saw the man was injured and found a flashlight in the living room that was surrounded by blood.

The man said he and the woman were arguing over allegations of infidelity.

The woman admitted hitting the man with the flashlight but said it was because he would not let her leave the house.

She was charged with misdemeanor battery and has a July 20 court date.
