Man hits wife with baseball bat as she sits in recliner: MPD
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police say a man attacked his wife with a baseball bat while she was sitting in a recliner at the couple’s home in Cordova.
The incident happened last month on Kimberly Rose Drive, but Larry Peete, 62, was just arrested on Sunday.
The victim told police she had a fight with her husband after he destroyed some of her personal belongings.
Peete’s wife said she was sitting in a recliner when she realized Peete was standing over her with a baseball bat.
The victim said she raised her arm to protect her head, and Peete took a hit and hit her in the elbow.
Police say the victim’s daughter and a family friend were also in the house, heard the commotion and were able to arrest Peete.
The victim was not seriously injured.
Peete was arrested at Holiday Ham on Poplar. He is being held on $30,000 bail and is due to appear before a judge on Tuesday.
