A Salt Lake City woman is accused of throwing shot glasses at her husband and attempting to stab him with a cane after the two argued over a card game earlier this week.
The 58-year-old woman was playing cards with her husband, daughter and her daughter's friend Sunday near 800 West and 300 North when she became upset over the game, according to charging documents filed Tuesday in 3rd District Court.
The woman pelted her husband and daughter with shot glasses. The daughter and the daughter's friend left the house, and the woman then began hitting her husband in the head with a cane, charges state.
The cane broke and the woman pointed it at her husband and threatened to stab him, according to the charges. She then found a baseball bat and began striking her husband with it. The man had to seek medical treatment for his injuries, charges state.
The woman is charged with third-degree felony aggravated assault, domestic violence assault, a class B misdemeanor, and criminal mischief, also a class B misdemeanor.
She is being held in the Salt Lake County jail on $25,000 bail.
Charging documents do not specify which card game the woman was playing, but the incident is the latest reported attack from a card game gone awry.
An Orem man whose luck ran out in a game of Uno was arrested Aug. 15 on suspicion of aggravated assault after he allegedly hit a woman and threatened her husband with a large kitchen knife.
The 58-year-old man, who had been drinking, was playing cards in his home with his 47-year-old nephew and the nephew's wife, 64, when he became agitated over the game, police said.
He hit his nephew's wife on the back of the head and when the couple later tried to leave, he waved a large kitchen knife at his nephew, Orem police said.
Police arrested the man on suspicion of aggravated assault and on three outstanding warrants.
