CRESTVIEW, Fla. - A Crestview couple has been arrested after deputies said the woman hit her husband with a burrito before he retaliated by stabbing her hand with a fork.

The Okalossa County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that deputies were called to the couple's home Tuesday. When they arrived, they found Suzanne Hurlvert, 51, with a fork protruding from her hand. It was so deeply embedded that hospital staff had to remove it.

Hurlvert told deputies that she and Carl Smith, 66, were arguing when she hit him in his head with her half-eaten Taco Bell burrito supreme. Hurlvert said Smith then stabbed her hand. Deputies found him at a bar.

Smith faces a charge of aggravated battery-domestic violence-related. Hurlvert faces a charge of domestic violence-related battery, second or subsequent offense.
