A 45-year-old woman has been charged with domestic battery after allegedly running over her ex-husband’s foot on Nov. 14 at an unidentified self-storage facility in Manatee County, Fla. Wendy Luper had gone to the facility with the victim to retrieve some of his belongings when the reconciled couple had an argument about having sex in the storage unit, according to the sheriff’s office.
The couple was married for 12 years before divorcing. They got back together in the last six months, according to the source. While parked in the rear of the facility on 14th Street W., Luper reportedly undressed and asked the victim if he wanted to have sex, sheriff’s deputies said in an arrest report. When the victim told Luper to lay down, she refused.
As the couple argued about sexual positions, the man walked away to “avoid an altercation,” the source reported. When he returned, Luper was parked at the front of the property. She told her ex-husband to remove his belongings from her vehicle and refused to give him a ride, investigators said. As the man began to collect his things, Luper allegedly threw an object at him, hitting him in the head and causing him to fall backward. As the victim continued to retrieve items from the car, Luper allegedly accelerated the vehicle, driving over the man’s right foot.
When deputies arrived at the scene, the man was bleeding from his head, and his foot was swelling and becoming discolored, according to deputies. The victim denied medical treatment.
Luper didn’t sustain any injuries during the incident. She has denied the allegations but was unable to explain her ex-husband’s injuries. She told investigators he wanted to have sex with her. She was released from county jail on $750 bond.
