DESTIN – A woman who told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies that her brother was the devil was arrested when the deputy learned she was the one who instigated the fight.

The 41-year-old Georgia woman, who was staying in Destin, was crying hysterically when deputies arrived.

She opened the door, screamed that her brother was the devil and then said he’d been lying in the street waiting for someone to run him over.

When the deputy questioned her further, she said that he’d strangled her by the throat and then thrown her.

The victim told deputies she’d been hitting him in the car and a video on the suspect’s phone supported his version of events.

She was charged with battery.
