A Florida woman is accused of beating her husband because she says he bought “the wrong flowers and candy for Mother’s Day”.
42-year-old Virginia Stewart is said to have beaten her husband with her fists and a coat hanger during a dispute that lasted from Saturday until Sunday morning.
She was arrested at just after 8:00 a.m. on Mother’s Day at her home.
“The defendant entered into a domestic relate argument with the victim concerning the defendant’s child and the victim getting her the wrong flowers and candy for mother’s day,” according to the arrest affidavit.
Officers say her husband’s face was visibly bruised when they responded to the couple’s residence.
She’s been charged with simple battery and was being held in the Manatee County Jail before being released on $750 bail.
