Maryland Woman Explains Why She Poured Grits On Her Husband
Last year we reported a Maryland woman was arrested last year and accused of pouring hot grits on her husband while he slept and then beat him senseless with a baseball bat. A year later, she claims everyone got the story incorrect according to FOX 5 DC:
These days, Alexis Staton is trying to start over. She was found not guilty after being charged with second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
“He wasn’t asleep and it wasn’t done deliberately,” she told FOX 5. “There was a restraining order in place. My husband and I have a long history of violence.”
Staton said she was defending herself in a physical altercation with her husband at the time. Her husband, who was covered with burns and bloodied, reportedly flagged down a stranger who called 911.
Staton was in custody ten hours before being released and ultimately cleared on all charges.
“I lost my job and I try not to think about that because I think about I’m blessed that I was able to make it through regardless,” said Staton. “Domestic violence is real. People sometimes think that you have to be physically abused for it to be considered domestic violence. But it’s not. You have verbal, emotional, financial and my husband had me in all categories.”
