HUNTINGBURG — An injury caused by a thrown drinking glass landed a Huntingburg woman in jail Wednesday evening.
The Huntingburg Police Department was called at 6:12 p.m. regarding a battery that had just occurred at a mobile home lot in the 500 block of East Seventh Street.
Police arrived and found a male victim who was bleeding from a cut to his left hand. The victim said he and Cynthia A. Flores, 57, of 521 E. Seventh St., were in his trailer, which is a neighboring unit to Flores’, watching television. Flores started cursing at the TV show, the victim said, and, when he said something to her about it, she grabbed a drinking glass and threw it at him.
The glass struck the victim’s right elbow, shattered and cut his left hand while leaving a red knot on his right elbow.
Flores told police it had been an accident when questioned by officers about the incident.
Police arrested Flores on a misdemeanor count of battery. She was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:10 p.m.
The victim declined to be transported for medical treatment, according to authorities.
