Fort Pierce woman accused of drunkenly biting hubby who threw away beer

FORT PIERCE, Fla. - A 35-year-old woman is accused of biting her husband after he told her he threw away the beer, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.

The husband on Dec. 9 showed Fort Pierce police a cell phone video of his wife, Tricia Renee Habeb, searching for beer in the refrigerator.

"The suspect became irate at the fact the victim put her beer in the garbage can," an affidavit states.

The husband was heard saying that he'd called police, and Habeb hit her spouse in the face area.

The affidavit didn't state whether the beer was domestic or import.

The husband said Habeb came home drunk, and was looking for more beer but couldn't find it. He said he disposed of the beer and that he wouldn't give her the car keys because she was intoxicated.

That, he said, is when Habeb got incensed and chomped him on the arm and neck.

Habeb said her husband held her against her will and that he punched her in the mouth. Police saw little, if any, injury to her.

Habeb, of the 1400 block of North Lawnwood Circle in Fort Pierce, was arrested on charges including battery and resist officer without violence.
