Woman beat wife with bedpost for putting marijuana in washer: cops

A Louisiana woman allegedly flew into a rage after learning her wife had accidentally tossed their marijuana in the washing machine — prompting her to attack her spouse with a bedpost.

Ashley Perkins, 30, of Youngsville, was visiting family with her wife in Navarre, Florida last week when the wild beatdown occurred, The Smoking Gun reported, citing a police report.

Perkins admitted to cops that she and her wife had “tussled” over marijuana on May 20 around 7:45 p.m. — but denied using the detached bedpost to whack her, the report said.

The victim, 48, told investigators with the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office that her wife beat her after learning she’d “accidentally placed” the weed “in the washer,” according to the report.

The spouse, who was hospitalized, suffered cuts to her left arm and contusions to the back of her head and legs, according to the report, which noted that responding medics said the victim’s left arm may have also been fractured in the alleged assault.

A bedpost was found on the bed where the couple was fighting. Perkins told cops that she believed her wife rolled over the bedpost, causing her injuries.

But cops said she “changed her story” while being transported to the local jail — claiming the victim picked up the bedpost and beat herself with it.

Perkins was ultimately charged with aggravated battery.
