DESTIN — A 34-year-old woman was arrested for misdemeanor battery after she bit, punched and kicked her child’s father after a drunken argument over a car seat.
According to an arrest report from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy responded to the couple’s Destin apartment complex in the early morning hours of Oct. 8 in reference to a battery. Once on scene, the woman’s boyfriend told the deputy the couple lived together and had a two-month-old child together.
The victim went on to tell the deputy that both he and his girlfriend were intoxicated when an argument began. According to him, he was trying to take his infant son out of his car seat. According to her, he installed the car seat upside down and feared for the child’s safety.
