A city woman was arrested Saturday after she allegedly hit her husband in the face with a can of beer while she was intoxicated, according to Johnson City police.
Melissa A. Osborne, 35, 23 Veterans Way, was charged with simple domestic assault after she got into an argument with her husband, Jeffrey D. Dalton, 47, at 2109 Barnett Drive about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.
According to the police report, Osborne reportedly began hitting Dalton with her fists before she struck him in the face with the beer can. Police said Dalton’s face was red and he had a scratch on the right side of his neck.
