(AP) Out of the frying pan and into the fire. That's pretty much what happened to a Cumberland County couple arrested and charged with whacking each other with a frying pan.
Heather and Samuel Newcome are both charged with domestic assault. They told Sheriff's Deputy Timothy Tutor last week that they got into an argument and hit each other with the cookware.
"Both parties had injuries consistent with both of their stories," Tutor says in his report.
Other family members got involved in the fray as well and apparently came to blows, but none decided to file charges.
Tutor took Heather Newcome the Cumberland County Justice Center, where she was charged, then took out a warrant on her husband, who later turned himself in.
The two are scheduled to appear Monday in General Sessions Court.
