DESTIN – A woman earned herself a battery charge after slapping her husband because he was angry that she was drunk.
The incident occurred Aug. 30 at an Airport Road residence. The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office says a man came home from work and discovered his wife was drunk. That triggered an argument and the woman allegedly slapped him in the face and pushed him several times.
When the man said he was calling the law, the woman ran out of the house and into nearby woods to hide.
The woman later told deputies she didn't remember what happened because she drank too much and she was "wrong."
She was charged with battery and has a Sept. 18 court date.
