Suzanne Hurlvert, 51, and Carl Owen Smith, 66, each face felony charges following a domestic dispute.

A Florida couple was arrested Tuesday after an argument led a woman to strike her husband in the back of the head with a burrito, police said.

The man, 66-year-old Carl Owen Smith, retaliated against 51-year-old Suzanne Hurlvert, by stabbing her hand with a fork, the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office wrote in a statement posted to Facebook.

Hurlvert told responding officers that the couple was fighting over Smith's desire to go the bar to drink every night.

"During the argument, [Hurlvert] hit him in the back of the head with her half-eaten Taco Bell Burrito Supreme," police said. "She said Smith then stabbed her hand with a fork he was using to eat a Taco Bell pizza and left their home."

Police added that Hulvert was "relatively calm and in good spirits but had a fork protruding from her right hand." The fork fragments were removed by staff at North Okaloosa Medical Center.
