After a woman reported to police that her husband was abusing her, and took off both of his prosthetic legs to hit her with, police arrested 63-year-old Richard T. Wilson Sr.
Ronna Wilson told police that her husband took off one prosthetic leg during an argument and threw it at her.
He then removed the other leg, and tried to hit her with it. She was able to block it before it did too much damage.
The Daily Mail reports:
She told police that her husband became angry after officers responded to a report of him being disorderly at his home the day before, according to the Sandusky Register.
A man called police to say his mother had been assaulted by Wilson.
After the police left, Ronna Wilson said her husband threw one of his prosthetic legs at her, striking her head, and threw her to the ground.
She told police that he then tried to strike her with his other prosthetic leg but she was able to ward off the blows with her wrist.
Police records show that the woman sustained a small injury: her arm was swollen after defending herself against the prosthetic leg.
The husband claims innocence, saying that the argument was caused by the wife.
He told police that his wife was ‘getting him in trouble,’ which agitated him enough to attack her.
