The Indian River County Sheriff's Office said the husband of Maryann Scott, 49, of Vero Beach told deputies had been planning to file for divorce and he hid a ring he had given Scott, valued at about $15,000, Nov. 26, TCPalm.com reported Wednesday.
The man said Scott became upset when he refused to tell her the location of the ring and she pulled a knife on him, saying "she was going to kill him and that he was going to tell her where he had hidden her ring."
Deputies said the husband told them Scott "firmly grabbed his left testicle and refused to let go."
"(Scott's husband) stated he then grabbed Maryann's wrist to try and get her to let go of his testicle," an affidavit states. "(Scott's husband) stated Maryann held on to his testicle for about two minutes or more before he was able to get her to let go."
Deputies said Scott took a picture of his injuries and there were apparent "red marks/bruises on the testicle in the photograph."
Scott was arrested on a battery charge.
