A woman allegedly attacked her husband after he remained silent when she asked him: ‘Am I pretty?’
Lizeth Guadalupe Ramirez is accused of repeatedly hitting her partner after he failed to respond to the question.
The 20-year-old woman from Texas was arrested last Tuesday but denies the allegations.
Her husband, who has not been named, told police they were at the cinema when she posed the question but claims he didn’t hear so didn’t respond.
Ramirez left the cinema upset having failed to be given an answer, authorities say.
During the car journey home, Ramirez’s husband claimed she allegedly hit him repeatedly, reports Fox News.
Once they arrived home she allegedly continued to hit him and assaulted a family member who tried to intervene.
She allegedly told investigators the man assaulted her and tried to strangle her.
Ramirez was charged with two counts of assault and family violence.
She was released from Webb County Jail on Thursday on $16,000 bond (£12,000).
