CHICAGO, May 21 (UPI) -- A woman seen dumping a beer on a man's head at a Chicago Cubs game said the man was her husband and he had just spilled on her.

Ellen Shockley, who was caught on camera dumping a cup of beer over Tim Shockley's head at Wrigley Field during Sunday's game against the New York Mets, said her husband had just spilled on her while reaching over his head for Travis Wood's two-run homer, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

"My first reaction was 'You [expletive], I'm soaking wet, so now you are going to be soaking wet too,'" she said. "But really, I would not have done that to a stranger if that happened. I might have jumped on him."

Tim Shockley defended his wife, who he met at a Cubs game in 1992.

"They were saying things like she needed anger management, or that she was probably a Sox fan," Tim said of online comments. "I think they were too hard on her. I thought it was funny. It's not like she shot me. Not that I want to give her any ideas or anything."

The couple said Monday they were amused when the video appeared on TV programs including SportsCenter," "Good Morning America" and "WGN Morning News."
