WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ohio — An Ohio woman allegedly assaulted her husband during an argument because he did not buy her a Valentine’s Day gift, deputies told WTAP.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a home just outside Parkersburg, Ohio around 11 a.m. Sunday and found a man with several injuries.

The man told deputies his wife, 46-year-old Kimberly Hammond, had been drinking and began to hit and scratch his face during a verbal altercation. She then allegedly grabbed a mini baseball bat and struck him in the back of the head, knocking him unconscious.

Hammond continued to attack her husband as he regained consciousness, according to deputies.

According to deputies, Hammond said she was upset because her husband did not get her a gift on Valentine’s Day.

Hammond admitted to drinking and blew a .221 during a breathalyzer test. She was arrested for felonious assault and domestic violence, according to deputies.
