A Perry woman was arrested for assault Thursday morning after allegedly slapping her husband as they drove.
Shawna Marie Jung, 44, of 1912 Warford St., Perry, was charged with first-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness.
The incident began about 11 a.m. Thursday when officers of the Perry Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance near 10th and Iowa streets.
According to court records, Jung and the victim were arguing while driving when Jung allegedly “reached over and slapped the face of the victim,” who “received scrapes on the left side of his face” from Jung’s fingernails.
Jung is held in the Dallas County Jail in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
