Woman jailed for breaking plastic spoon over boyfriend's head

A Florida woman accused of breaking a plastic spoon over her boyfriend's head after the boyfriend threw her food on the lawn was sent to jail. The boyfriend of Caroline Hunter, 50, told Port St. Lucie police that when he got home Hunter was drunk and fixing food.

The 52-year-old boyfriend said Hunter was burning the food, so he threw it on the lawn outside. He said Hunter grew angry "'because she was drunk'" and started throwing stuff at him.

She also grabbed a plastic spoon and hit him over the head, breaking the spoon, he said. The boyfriend said his head hurt and showed investigators the broken spoon. Meanwhile, Hunter said her boyfriend arrived home drunk and hurled her hamburger on the front lawn.

Hunter, listed as a nurse, admitted hitting her boyfriend with a spoon,. "I can't believe I'm going to jail for hitting him with a spoon," she is quoted as saying. Hunter was arrested on a battery (domestic) charge.

Hmph. I live about 8 miles from Port St. Lucie and lets just say that wouldn't be too unusual a story, especially on a weekend night....
