A drunk Florida woman is behind bars after attacking a man with a hammer after accusing him of stealing her alcohol. Lorrie Wilds had already knocked a few back when she went looking for more, becoming enraged when she noticed the rum she thought she had left was nowhere to be found, Fox 35 Orlando reports.

The victim had no idea what hit him (quite literally).

He told deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office that he was in the garage when Lorrie Wilds came barging in, shouting about the missing rum. The victim then told her that he doesn’t drink rum, which only incensed Wilds further.

She began knocking items in the garage over and went on a rampage, eventually choking the man and punching him. He struggled to get away, which is when she picked up the hammer.

Thankfully, no serious injuries were caused.

The victim told police that he originally had no idea what Lorrie Wilds had hit him with. However, he soon realized it was the blunt end of a hammer.

Deputies noticed the man had a small scrape on his head with fresh blood coming from it. They also found the standard black-and-blue handled hammer nearby, as well.

The man’s injuries were not serious, and it’s unclear whether or not he required or sought medical attention.
