Key West, FL (April 23, 2019) – 31-year-old Heather Pinkerton was arrested after allegedly attacking her husband when they became involved in a dispute about bowling.
Allegedly, the two got into an argument at a local bowling alley. She and her husband were involved in the argument for some time before the fight turned into a physical one. Pinkerton then took her husband’s glasses and broke them. He then knocked over a drink out of anger.
Pinkerton’s husband walked away from the argument to diffuse the argument but she continued to confront him and yell at him. Pinkerton then struck her husband with her purse.
Before police arrived, her husband said that he took her in a bear hug so that she would stop striking him. When police arrived, they found her husband with scratches on his face.
Pinkerton was arrested on a charge of battery and booked in jail, but has since been released on a $500 bond.
