An argument between a man and a woman in Holiday, Florida, on Monday involved two different household tools used as weapons.
According to a police report, deputies from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office responded to a domestic disturbance call, and spoke with the victim. He said that he had been involved in a “verbal altercation” with the defendant, Kimberly Mann.
The argument first escalated, the victim said, when Mann “poked him with a broomstick,” read the complaint.
When he tried to pull the broomstick away, Mann then bit him on his arm and hit him with a light bulb, he told officers.
Mann admitted to biting the man’s arm but claimed it was in self-defense, deputies said.
Deputies found a broken light bulb, consistent with the victim’s story, and saw a “red/purple mark” on his arm, consistent with a bite.
The 32-year-old Florida woman was arrested on a domestic battery charge and transported to Land O Lakes jail on $1,000 bond.
