Couple jailed after spat near dancing 'strippers' at St. Lucie County Mudjam event, reports state

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- A man at the recent St. Lucie Mudjam said he and his wife "were watching the strippers dance on the buggies with stripper poles attached" when his wife grew upset with him.

Tony Freeman, 40, then told St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputies March 16 that he and his wife, 38-year-old Erica Freeman, got in an altercation, recently released arrest affidavits state. Tony Freeman was bleeding from scratches to the face.

Erica Freeman, who had a knot on her eye, said she argued with her spouse "at the stripper poles about wanting to leave," an affidavit states. She said her husband hit her and she hit him.

"Both subjects were very intoxicated," affidavits state.

The St. Lucie Mudjam is "500 acres of mud & party," a website states. An upcoming event is June 15-17.

Stripper is a term that usually refers to a woman who removes her clothes as part of a sensual or exotic dance, while a stripper pole is a pole used by a stripper in her routine. Strippers and stripper poles typically are found in gentlemen's clubs, also known as strip clubs, as opposed to outdoor events where motorized vehicles are driven through mud.

Tony Freeman and his wife, both of the 3300 block of Southwest Perrine Street in Port St. Lucie, were arrested, each on a misdemeanor battery charge.
