Police: Woman attacked husband in chicken dispute
ORANGEBURG, SC - A recently wed Orangeburg man was taken to the hospital late Wednesday after an altercation with his bride resulted in a sugar bowl being broken over his head, according to a report.
The 49-year-old man was treated for a laceration to his neck and later released. Bandaged, he was present at Thursday’s bond hearing professing his undiminished love for his June bride.
Lisa Scott, 40, of Landmark Towers apartments, appeared in Orangeburg Municipal Court Thursday where bond was set at $5,000 personal recognizance after the victim told the court the altercation was a misunderstanding over cooking.
Someone reported a fight around 11 p.m. As the elevator door opened on the fourth floor of the apartment building, officers found a man sitting on the floor holding a towel against his head.
While officers tended to the man, he slumped over. A police incident report says a laceration on the back of his head was “bleeding profusely.”
Emergency Medical Services then transported the man to the Regional Medical Center.
A woman inside the apartment said the altercation began when the man said he was going to fry some chicken. The report states she told police her husband, who she married in June, was “acting like a punk.”
She said after he punched her in the face, she grabbed a sugar bowl and broke it over the back of his head.
Police noted they saw no injury on the woman’s face. They did find blood in multiple places throughout the apartment, ranging from the kitchen through a living room and into a bathroom.
At the hospital, the man’s condition was initially regarded as stable, the report indicated.
He told police he was going to cook his bride some chicken. But she began throwing the chicken into the trash prior to snatching up the sugar bowl.
Scott’s criminal history indicates she’s been charged with simple assault and later a charge of hit and run with property damage in 2010. A year earlier, she was found guilty of misuse of 911.
