NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A woman in southwest Florida has been arrested after deputies say she assaulted her husband for complaining about her cooking.
A Lee County Sheriff's Office arrest report shows 66-year-old Meredith Hart Mulcahy of Bonita Springs was charged with battery on an elderly person Tuesday night.
Deputies say her husband, 71-year-old Richard Johnson, got into an argument with her about undercooked potatoes and burnt bread. He went to the bedroom and began eating, and authorities say Mulcahy then threw a phone at him.
Deputies say she became belligerent in the back seat of the patrol car and earlier yelled, "she burned the bread she was cooking because she was so intoxicated." She was in the Lee County Jail on Wednesday pending a $1,500 bond.
