Pasco County deputies say a Holiday woman went too far in pursuit of a well-kept home early Tuesday morning.

Holly Jane Akers, 31, of 3159 Jackson Drive, was arrested shortly after 6 a.m. Tuesday and charged with one count of felony battery on a person 65 or older. Her husband, Charles Plagens, said Akers attacked him with a vacuum cleaner part, according to a complaint affidavit.

According to the affidavit:

Plagens said he argued with Akers after she started cleaning the house around 3 a.m. Tuesday. He moved from room to room to try to sleep, but she followed him with the vacuum cleaner. Akers struck him on the bridge of the nose with a vacuum cleaner attachment, Plagens told deputies, causing a minor abrasion that did not require medical treatment.

Akers acknowledged the argument, the report said, but denied hitting her husband with the vacuum cleaner part. Because of Plagensí statement and a visible injury, deputies arrested Akers and took her to the Pasco County jail, where she was being held Wednesday without bond.
