A woman accused of breaking a plastic spoon over her boyfriend's head after the boyfriend tossed her food on the lawn was sent to the slammer.
The boyfriend of Caroline Hunter, 50, told Port St. Lucie police March 2 that when he got home Hunter was drunk and fixing food, according to a recently released police report.
The 52-year-old boyfriend said Hunter was burning the food, so he threw it on the lawn outside. He said Hunter grew angry "'because she was drunk'" and started throwing stuff at him.
She also grabbed a plastic spoon and hit him over the head, breaking the spoon, he said. The boyfriend said his head hurt and showed investigators the busted spoon.
Meanwhile, Hunter said her boyfriend arrived home drunk and hurled her hamburger on the front lawn.
Hunter, listed as a nurse, said she hit her boyfriend with a spoon, a utensil used in eating soups and stirring beverages.
"I can't believe I'm going to jail for hitting him with a spoon," Hunter is quoted as saying.
Hunter, of the 4700 block of Southwest Yacolt Drive in Port St. Lucie, was arrested on a battery (domestic) charge.
