Dispute Over Used Tampon Left On The Floor Leads To Woman's Arrest For Battering Husband

A domestic dispute that began with an argument over a used tampon discarded on the floor ended last night with the arrest of a Florida woman for allegedly battering her husband.

As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, the husband of Cortteza Liandra Sellers, 32, asked her to speak with her 17-year-old daughter about the discarded tampon. “While discussing the unsanitary nature of leaving used tampons on the floor, the argument became heated,” reported a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

As the dispute transitioned into a “shoving match,” Sellers allegedly scratched her spouse on the side of his face, drawing blood.

Though Sellers’s husband did not want her arrested, investigators determined that she was the “primary aggressor” during the confrontation. As a result, she was busted on a battery count and booked into the county jail, where bail has yet to be set.

Sellers, seen in the above mug shot, is scheduled for a September 24 court appearance on the misdemeanor charge.
