Woman Pepper-Sprays Husband Who Works For Florida Detention Center

SPRING HILL, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — A woman is behind bars after pepper-spraying her husband who is a Hernando County Detention Center employee.

Emerald Quinones, 28, was arrested Nov. 23 after taking the pepper spray from her husband’s utility belt and spraying him with it as a result of an alleged fight the two had at their home. She has been charged with domestic battery, violation of pretrial release, and eight counts of criminal mischief, according to police records.

At around 4 p.m. last Wednesday, Quinones’s husband allegedly yelled at her and lightly touched her arm, she told police. This came after Quinones cut up her husband’s work uniforms with scissors, the husband told police, totaling about $274 in damages. Quinones told police that she was mad at her husband for going to work, which caused her to slice up his uniforms.

Shortly after the husband allegedly yelled at her, Quinones pepper-sprayed him, according to police records.

Hernando County Police Cpl. Wendy McGinnis told CBS Tampa that Quinones had a no contact order with her husband issued against her on Nov. 14, which came as a result of an arrest on battery charges on Nov. 10.

Quinones is being held on $40,000 bond. She remains in custody at the Hernando County Detention Center, her husband’s employer.
