SANTA ROSA BEACH — A man was taken to the Walton County Jail after his wife said she threw her on the bed because she confronted him about drinking with his boss.

According to a Walton County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, the 45-year-old man returned home from a work party on April 21 inebriated. His wife of three years told him he was being too drunk around his boss, and the man became angry and threw her on the bed, she told police.

She said he then put his hands on her neck and pushed her onto the chair by the door. She said he didn’t choke her, but rather used her neck to throw her down.

The woman declined medical attention and said she did not hurt, but had faint red marks on her neck.

The man told police that his wife was angry when he arrived home from drinking at his boss’ house, but said that’s all he recalled. He then asked for a lawyer and a shirt before being taken to jail.

The man was charged with battery.
