Marchman Act Blog Oddity of the Day:Dispute over Viagra leads to arrest for battery
When Nelson Grizales arrived home Monday and asked for his Viagra medication, his wife replied that she had crushed the pills and tossed them into the front yard, a Davie police complaint states.
Through a Spanish translator, Amparo Grizales told Broward Judge John "Jay" Hurley in court Tuesday, "I fed them to the plants."
Nelson Grizales, 68, got angry, slapped his wife's face with an open hand and pushed her to the floor, police said. Amparo Grizales told police she had never seen her husband of 31 years that angry.

Grizales told officers he was mad because she threw his Viagra pills out and pushed her, according to the police report. He was arrested, charged with battery and bail was set at $10,000 after Amparo Grizales said she was not scared of him. "I think he learned his lesson," she told the judge.
Hurley ordered that when Grizales is released, he may only have indirect contact with his wife through a relative, and to "stay away from her, for the time being."
