ST. PETERSBURG – She was charged with battery by beer.

Melva Ann Wixon, 49, was arrested Tuesday night on a domestic battery charge after a wet incident at her apartment.

Here's the police version of events:

Wixon got home about 7 p.m. at an apartment she shares with her boyfriend, Eric Hartman. She had been drinking at a bar. He had been sleeping.

She was angry at him because he plans to move to Ohio. So she poured beer on him. This woke him up.

Displeased by her action, Hartman called police.

Wixon was still at the Pinellas County Jail Wednesday morning.

The brand of beer she wielded was not included in the incident report.
