A Safety Harbor woman was arrested for hitting her husband because he wouldn’t take down the Confederate flag, according to deputies.
Deputies say Margaret “Peggy” Rae Carpenter and her husband, Larry, were arguing over the Confederate flag Larry had put up Saturday afternoon.
According to the arrest affidavit, she kept asking him to take down the flag and he refused.
Deputies said the fight turned physical when Peggy, who was wearing two bracelets at the time, stuck Larry in the arm, causing him to bleed.
The 60 year old was charged with domestic battery.
