Police Blotter: Domestic spat(ula) incident results in arrest

Remember those old television shows where wives threw dishes at their husbands, or maybe went after them with a frying pan? For one Edmonds couple, the instrument of choice was a plastic spatula, which a 66-year-old woman used against her 67-year-old husband during an argument. The March 18 spatula attack left a visible injury,  according to Sgt. Don Anderson of the Edmonds Police Department, resulting in the wife being arrested and charged under Washington state’s domestic assault law.
