(MITCHELL) - A Mitchell man was arrested after Lawrence County Police received a report from a woman saying her husband had slapped her.

Officers arrived at the home in the 900 block of Vincennes Road at 11:25 p.m. Tuesday night.

According to Lawrence County Chief Deputy Aaron Shoults, the woman reported her husband had slapped her across the face multiple times after he thought she had laughed about a situation he was telling her about.

"Officers could see redness to the victims cheeks," Shoults says. "She was offered medical attention but refused. Officers then spoke to the suspect, who appeared to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage."

Police arrested 55-year-old Rick Woods on a charge of domestic battery.
