Wife Wearing 'Stop Domestic Violence' Shirt Arrested... for Domestic Violence
A woman in Maine was arrested following a domestic violence dispute and when she lined up for her mugshot, she was wearing the most ironic shirt possible.
Emily Wilson, 38, of Sangerville, Maine, was arrested in April after firing a gun in her bedroom during an argument with her husband, according to prosecutors. When she was booked, she was wearing a top that said “Stop Domestic Violence.”
Wilson, a high school teacher, was charged with domestic violence, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence assault.
On April 18, she confronted her husband over suspicions he was having an affair, District Attorney, R. Christopher Almy, told The Bangor Daily News.
During the argument, she waved a loaded .45-caliber handgun before firing shots into the bed, according to Almy.
Her husband, who has not been named because he is a possible domestic violence victim, called police. The husband also claims that his wife grabbed his wrist during the confrontation.
She will appear in court on June 6. If convicted of the domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon charge, she faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. If convicted of the domestic violence assault charge, she faces up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000.
She is currently out on bail.
