WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Casey Anthony told police a woman poured a drink on her at a downtown West Palm Beach bar during an argument about a man.

Anthony, who was acquitted of murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, called West Palm Beach police Sunday evening after getting into an argument with another woman "about an ex-boyfriend they were dating at the same time," a police report said.

According to the report, the argument became heated and the woman "spilled water on [Anthony's] left leg."

The reporting officer wrote that Anthony wanted the incident documented, but when she was advised about how to file a restraining order, the 35-year-old said she didn't wish to do so. However, Anthony advised that "it has been an ongoing issue for years."

Anthony's 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was found dead in Orlando in 2008.

A jury found Anthony guilty of four misdemeanor charges but acquitted her of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter during a high-profile trial in 2011.

After serving a few weeks in jail, Anthony left Orlando and moved to West Palm Beach.
