VERO BEACH, Fla., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said an incident beginning with a dare to smack a woman's rear-end resulted in an attempted screwdriver attack.

The Indian River County Sheriff's Office said Mary Ingram, 43, and a man to whom she was speaking around 7:15 p.m. Nov. 28 in Vero Beach told deputies she bent over and dared the man to slap her buttocks, reported Tuesday.

The man removed his belt and slapped Ingram's rear in a "joking manner," the arrest report states.

However, Ingram was upset by the move and exchanged harsh words with the man before returning a short time later with her husband, Floyd Mosley, 50.

The man said Ingram was swinging a screwdriver at him during the altercation and Mosley eventually took the screwdriver and attempted to stab him. The confrontation ended when the man punched Mosley in the face.

Ingram and Mosley, who told deputies he was only trying to talk the man when he was "sucker punched," were each charged with a count of felony aggravated assault with a weapon.
