A Warrenville woman was detained for criminal domestic violence for assaulting and biting her husband for placing an umbrella on a table, according to the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.
Deanna Lynn Leopard, 42, of Taylor Plantation Road, was charged with criminal domestic violence and placed in the Aiken County detention center, where she remained on Tuesday afternoon.
The 55-year-old victim told officers Leopard got upset over an umbrella being on the table, according to a sheriff's report. He said he was sitting in a chair when Leopard began to argue with him, then struck him in the face and began to assault him. During the argument, Leopard hit the victim in the left arm and ripped his shirt off.
The victim had lacerations to his noes and right arm, and injuries on his left arm that to appear to be bite marks, the report stated. Leopard told deputies she got upset because her husband placed the umbrella, which he uses as a cane, on the table. She said the victim grabbed her and began assaulting her.
Leopard couldn't explain how the injuries happened to the victim, the report stated. She “added to her story” that the victim grabbed her by the hair, and that's why she bit him.
Leopard resisted officers repeatedly as they tried to arrest her, and had to be placed on the ground to be handcuffed. While being transported to and placed in a patrol car, she tried multiple times to spit on deputies.
