NAVARRE — A Holley Navarre Middle School teacher was arrested Sunday after stabbing her husband with a pencil.
Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office responded to a Navarre home in reference to a domestic violence disturbance Sunday between the hours of noon and 5 p.m.
The husband told SRSO that his 46-year-old wife was intoxicated when she came home that day. He said that he was watching football when she grabbed a bag of chips from his hands and crushed it and then began pushing and shoving him repeatedly. The responding deputy said he could smell "an odor of (an) alcoholic beverage emanating" from the female.
The husband said he tried to get away, but was unable to while his wife continued to push and shove him, according to the arrest report. At some point during the altercation, she stabbed a pencil into his upper right chest, breaking the skin and piercing his shirt.
She was charged with one count of battery, a misdemeanor, and taken to Santa Rosa County Jail without incident.
