Rachel Butterbaugh a 33 year old woman from North Liberty, Iowa has been arrested and charged with domestic abuse after biting and scratching her husband after the man declined to have sex with her.
According to a report via thesmokinggun, the wife had returned to her home on Saturday night circa 10pm only to find her husband in bed.
Upon telling the man she ‘wanted sex’ the husband refused, leading to the woman becoming physical and according to a cited police report ‘began scratching and biting him’.
When police arrived at the home, the husband insisted he had only sought to defend himself and upon eventually relenting the woman left only to call 911, accusing her husband of having attempted to choke her.
Yet when cops examined the scene, they determined that the husband’s injuries did not fit the description that the Rachel Butterbaugh had tended, concluding that she had attacked him.
The man was left with several scratch marks on his neck and a bloody lip.
At present, it isn’t necessarily understood why the woman sought to implicate her husband as the aggressor, with some wondering if the woman may have sought to play into stereo types of women being victims at the hands of men?
Relenting, the wife eventually admitted to biting her husband and was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic abuse charge and booked into the county jail.
She was released from custody late Sunday morning after posting a $2000 bond.
Butterbaugh has two prior assault convictions, according to court records.
