OCALA, Fla., Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Authorities said they arrested a 42-year-old woman accused of beating up her 82-year-old boyfriend in Ocala, Fla.

The victim, who suffered eye and face injuries, said his girlfriend had been drinking and attacked him.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office said Deputy Robert Thomas arrived at a home Wednesday and the woman ran out and told him her boyfriend was inside, the Ocala Star-Banner reported Friday.

The deputy walked toward the residence and the man came out covered in blood. The sheriff's office said blood was coming from his left eye and face, which was swollen to the point of inhibiting his eyesight.

The woman, who had no injuries, said she attacked the man in self-defense.

The girlfriend, whose name was not released, was taken to the Marion County Jail on an aggravated battery charge.
