A woman was arrested in a domestic violence event that allegedly began with harsh words, but resulted in her extinguishing her cigarette on her boyfriend’s forehead.
43-year-old Heather Mayeaux and her 47-year-old boyfriend live together in a Florida home.
On September 26, when the man arrived home from work around 6:00 pm, the pair reportedly began squabbling with each other the instant he entered their residence.
Things escalated to the point that Mayeaux allegedly pushed her boyfriend a few times, and in her reportedly heightened state of frustration she has been accused of using the man’s head to stamp out her lit cigarette.
When an officer responded to the situation and went to the home, it was noted that the alleged victim did not require nor want any kind of medical treatment for injuries he may have sustained due to the reported dispute.
After it was determined that Mayeaux would be placed under arrest for the suspicion that she was the aggressor in the incident, the woman was reportedly read her rights as she was apprehended.
Mayeaux reportedly decided to waive her right to remain silent, and she allegedly said that while it was possible that her cigarette made contact with her boyfriend’s head she did not at any point put her hands on him physically.
When Mayeaux, who was found to have no previous legal run-ins for this type of crime, was booked into the county jail she was charged for suspicion of misdemeanor battery.
Due to the nature of the allegations, it has been ordered that upon Mayeaux’s release from incarceration she is not allowed to have any contact with her boyfriend.
