A Louisiana woman has been arrested for allegedly beating her wife with a bedpost because she put her marijuana in the washing machine.
Ashley Perkins, 30, was taken into custody in Navarre after allegedly beating her 47-year-old wife Ruth when they got into an argument last Monday morning over the missing drugs.
Her wife told the officers who responded that Ashley beat her on the legs, arms and body with a bedpost because she was so enraged.
She was taken to the hospital with a possibly fractured arm and bruising on her head.
Perkins at first denied attacking her wife and told the officers that she had sustained the injuries by rolling onto the bedpost.
She then claimed that her wife picked up the post and started hitting herself with it.
During police interviews, she admitted that the fight began because her wife had accidentally put her marijuana in the washing machine and washed it.
The 30-year-old was released from jail on a $25,000 bond shortly afterwards.
The pair have several children between them.
They got married earlier this year. It is unclear how long they had been dating beforehand.
