In August, a man was arrested, charged and convicted of assault after spanking his wife’s behind because she disrespected him, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.

The Skegness Magistrate’s Court heard how 60-year-old John Smith, ordered his wife Kim to bend over and hit her behind five times, in a dispute over money.

When police officers arrived at the scene, Smith said that she deserved it. The court granted Kim a restraining order against Smith.
