    Suzanne Hurlvert and Carl Smith

    A Crestview couple has been arrested after deputies say the woman hit her husband with a burrito before he retaliated by stabbing her hand with a fork.

    The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets in a statement that deputies responded Tuesday to a home, where they found 51-year-old Suzanne Hurlvert with a fork protruding from her hand. It was so deeply embedded that hospital staff had to remove it.

    Hurlvert told deputies that she and 66-year-old Carl Smith were arguing when she hit him in his head with her half-eaten Taco Bell Burrito Supreme. Hurlvert says Smith then stabbed her hand. Deputies found him at a bar.

    Smith is charged with aggravated battery - domestic violence related. Hurlvert is charged with domestic violence related battery, second or subsequent offense. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
