Dawn Meikle: Port St. Lucie woman arrested after fight over flatulence


PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - A Port St. Lucie woman was arrested after police said she attacked her husband for passing gas one too many times.

According to a police report, around 3:30 a.m. Dec. 11, an officer responded to a domestic battery call at a home on SW Sadwick Avenue.

The officer said a man at the home stated he was lying in bed with his wife when he passed gas.

The husband said he wife, identified as Dawn Meikle, 55, then began elbowing him on his arm.  The husband said he continued to pass gas and Meikle continued to elbow and kick him again.

He told police that he began restraining his wife for his own safety but her "lip was inadvertently split open," according to the report.

During the fight, police said the husband suffered several 6- to 8-inch scratches across his chest.   His shirt was also ripped in three different places.  

Meikle admitted to police that she began to elbow and punch him after she repeatedly told him to stop passing gas in bed.

She also said her lip became split only while trying to be restrained and not from a punch.

Meikle was charged with domestic battery and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
