The Six Pack Attack

Mike Wallace (no, not the 147 year old 60 Minutes guy) was arrested over the weekend after beating his wife with an odd choice of weapons.

A coffee pot and a six pack of beer.

After coming home late and already drunk Saturday night, Wallace started an argument with his wife, Chastiny Atkinson.  The dispute got violent when he hit her with first the coffee pot and then the six pack of beer.  He then held her down and pulled chunks of hair from her head and choked her.  After the assault he threatened to return if she called the police.

She did and he was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, second-degree strangulation, reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, and second-degree breach of peace.

His version of events is that while he admits to the six pack smack, that only came after she’d hit him with the coffee pot.
