Coos County Sheriff's deputies responded to a domestic dispute in which a Coos Bay woman is accused of beating her husband of 17 years.
According to a Coos County Sheriff's press release, Shawn Boyer had been drinking with her husband most of the day when the two got into an argument about cigarette tobacco. The conflict turned violent and Boyer’s husband was hit several times in the face, causing some injuries. However, medical assistance wasn't deemed unnecessary.
Although the altercation between Boyer and her husband was mutual, Coos County Sheriff’s Office does believe that Boyer was the aggressor.
Shawn Boyer was arrested for domestic harassment and taken to Coos County Jail, where her bail was set at $5,000. She was released the next morning due to overcrowding in the jail.
