A woman who accused her spouse of forgetting their wedding anniversary was arrested on Wednesday when her disappointment and their arguing allegedly led her to hit him.

On the morning of March 21, 35-year-old Carol Lynn Stone began arguing with her husband, 41-year-old Ronnie William Alexander, when she was convinced that he had fallen prey to the cliché of forgetting their anniversary. Alexander left for work and their bickering reportedly continued through text messages throughout the day.

When Alexander returned home from work later that afternoon he brought his wife a rose and said he had plans to take her to a hotel on a weekend getaway. Stone was allegedly still very heated over the belief that Alexander had let their anniversary slip his mind and she decided to take a shower.

In a Torrance courtroom on Monday, former President Bill Clinton’s half brother Roger Clinton, was sentenced to three years probation, two days in jail, a nine month alcohol program and thousands in fines for driving under the influence of alcohol in Redondo Beach and refusing to take a chemical test after he was arrested.

On June 5th 2016, Roger Clinton was pulled over while driving in Redondo Beach. Officers claimed his eyes were red and watery, his speech was slurred, his car smelled of alcohol and he could barely stand. Clinton’s blood alcohol level was reportedly 0.230 and 0.237, nearly three times the legal limit. (In California it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level at 0.08 or above.)

Clinton was not required to appear in court on his misdemeanor charges against him as he had an attorney appear on his behalf. His criminal defense lawyer plead “no contest” to one count of driving while impaired and the allegation that he refused the chemical test. A count for driving with a blood alcohol higher than 0.08 was dismissed, according to prosecutors.
