 SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) - An South Carolina woman is accused of hitting her husband, upset with him because he not yet cooked dinner, according to a sheriff's office report.

Spartanburg County deputies said they were called to the newlywed couple's Boiling Springs home on Monday about the assault.

The man ran out to officers waving his arms at them saying he had been assaulted by his wife, 31-year-old April Cooper, according to deputies.

The report said Cooper was upset her husband had not cooked dinner, so he left to get groceries, but when he returned home, she was gone.

The man sat in the recliner and waited for her to return and when she did, she began yelling, hitting him in the head and chest, according to the report. Deputies said the man took his wife's phone and went outside to call 911, but Cooper threatened to damage her husband's property if he did not return the phone.

He gave it back but went to a neighbor's to call 911 while Cooper made threats to hurt herself, deputies said. When officers spoke to her, she told deputies her husband has been stressed out because of work, she never touched him, and they were happily married, only arguing occasionally. The report said the couple was married in January.

Deputies said her husband had scratches on his neck, chest and injuries on his face.

Cooper was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence.
