MANATEE -- A couple was charged with domestic battery Saturday after a fight that involved the woman throwing a box of condoms at the man's eye, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
William Hessian, 19, and Dominique Claridge, 19, both of Bradenton, live together as a couple and were in a vehicle at 11:25 p.m. Saturday in the 4300 block of Kingsfield Drive in Parrish when they began to fight, according to an arrest report.
Hessian said the fight turned physical when Claridge threw box of condoms at him that hit him in the eye, according to the report. Deputies said they saw bruising around Hessian's eye.
Claridge told deputies that she had thrown the box of condoms, but only because Hessian was getting physical with her first, according to the report.
Hessian told deputies that Claridge had also hit him with her fists after throwing the box, which Claridge denied.
Since deputies could not determine the primary aggressor and both parties had injuries, both Hessian and Claridge were arrested on domestic battery charges.
