Couple Grapple Over Dog Near Shower

Some stories are just too strange for words. Take this one for example...

In Bremerton, WA, a 25 year old woman was arrested for second-degree assault after getting into an argument with her boyfriend. Apparently the woman refused to let his dog in the bathroom while they took a shower together.

According to the police report, the man, 26, wanted his dog to join them in the bathroom but the woman refused. She told him that if the dog doesn't stay out of the bathroom, she didn't want to be his girlfriend anymore. He replied that maybe his next girlfriend would appreciate the dog more, and called her a name.

The police report stated that the woman punched the man in the face several times and the man dislocated his shoulder after the naked couple grappled. He told police his girlfriend threw a picture frame at him, which broke and cut him. The woman is now in jail and bail has been set at $50,000.

In my opinion, they were both wrong in this situation. The woman was obviously out of line for hurting her boyfriend so severely, yet the man should have simply respected her wishes after she refused to let the dog in the bathroom. Some people feel strange taking showers with ANYONE in the room, even a pet. I personally don't mind if my dog sits in the bathroom while I take a shower, but I will not hold it against another person if they do. Still, her reaction was pretty crazy. Talk about a stupid reason to end up with a criminal record.
