DESTIN — A 47-year-old woman was arrested for battery after her boyfriend recorded her beating him.

An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy responded in the middle of the night to a Destin home about a disturbance. At the home, a man said his live-in girlfriend lunged at him and was hitting him.

He said the woman also knocked his phone from his hands. The deputy could see several fresh scratches on the man’s chest and his shirt was torn, according to the arrest report.

The woman told the deputy that the man actually lunged at her and pushed her to the ground. However, the man had a video on his cell phone that showed the woman instigating a fight and injuring him.
