OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. – A Florida couple was arrested this week after an alleged burrito attack.
Authorities say the couple was arrested after 51-year-old Suzanne Hurlvert hit her husband in the back of the head with a burrito during an argument over his alcohol consumption.
That is when the husband, 66-year-old Carl Own Smith, retaliated by stabbing his wife in the hand with a fork, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said.
Authorities were eventually called to the home on reports of a disturbance.
That is when officers saw a fork protruding from Hurlvert’s right hand.
She had to be taken to a local hospital to have it removed.
Smith was not at home by the time sheriff’s deputies arrived.
Officers later found him at a nearby bar.
When they showed Smith the pictures of his wife’s hand, he reportedly started laughing.
The pair has a lengthy history of domestic violence, the sheriff’s office said.
They were both arrested and charged with domestic violence related battery.
