A woman was arrested on a charge of domestic battery after allegedly beating her husband because he farted in bed while he was sleeping, according to police in Zimbabwe.

Mpumalanga police said that they have arrested Nompumelelo Nyamane, after being accused of beating her husband, Fikile Nyamane, as he slept in her bed and used pepper spray against him.

Nompumelelo was charged with one count of domestic battery.

According to the victim, while he slept in bed, Nompumelelo hit him in the face with her elbow. When he asked her what he did to deserve this, she told him that he farted.

After he tried to go back to sleep, his angry wife sat on top of him and hit him until he fell unconscious. Fikile fell out of bed and onto the ground, where his wife scratched his chest.

The woman then used pepper spray against her husband to make sure that he doesn’t retaliate against her.
