Simple battery
Lake Pamona Road, Midway

An altercation between a man and his estranged wife and mother-in-law led to an argument and a glass of tea being thrown by the mother-in-law, hitting the wife in the face. The fight started when the husband and mother-in-law showed up at the wife's house so he could gather some of his belongings. She had changed the locks on the residence and didn't want either of them there. The deputy explained that the husband had a right to gather his belongings as long as there were no restraining orders against him, being they were still legally married. The deputy left but was soon called back after the tea attack. She claimed she was trying to stop the couple from having another argument.
