Texas woman charged with assault after allegedly hitting husband

Apr 22, 2019 | Violent Crimes

When tempers flare, it can be difficult for some individuals to keep their actions under control. Some parties may let their feelings get the better of them, and as a result, they could act in ways that may land them in serious trouble. For instance, if a person becomes angry, he or she may have a violent outburst that could lead to criminal charges for assault.

It was recently reported that a woman in Texas was taken into custody for such charges. Apparently, the woman and her husband had gone to the theater, and at some point during their outing, the woman reportedly asked her husband if she looked pretty. The man stated that he did not hear her question, and as a result, he did not answer. However, the lack of answer apparently made the woman angry.

While on the way home, the man claims that the woman began to hit him while he was driving and continued to strike him after they were back home. A relative reportedly tried to intervene, but the woman allegedly struck that person as well. As a result, authorities were apparently called, and the woman was taken into custody on two counts of family violence assault.

The woman accused in this Texas case likely wonders how she will effectively handle the charges brought against her. She may even wonder how the situation escalated to this point. Nonetheless, she must now address the assault charges brought against her, and gaining information on her legal options may allow her to do so in a meaningful way. Obtaining that information from local legal resources may help her through this ordeal.
