A New York woman has been arrested after beating up her 90-year-old husband. She also fought with a deputy, which lead to him being sent to the hospital.
72-year-old Darlene Stolaruk was taken into custody because of a call they received for an assault Thursday. The incident occurred at Star Bat Inc. Leasing, a business she shares with her husband.
When a deputy attempted to take her into custody, she resisted. She and the law enforcement officer then fell to the ground, according to Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.
“They lost their footing and she landed on his shoulder, which caused a shoulder injury,” Bouchard said.
“It could have been potentially assault and battery or some kind of domestic violence charge but when you escalate it and resist arrest,” he said. “And the officer in this case gets injured, now you have escalated the potential charges.
She’s since been released on bond.
The business she and her husband shared was closed.
