MARTIN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - An eastern Kentucky woman accused of hitting her ex-husband in the head with a pool ball is now behind bars.
Martin County jail records show Girdie Kazee, 39, of Paintsville is charged with assault.
Kazee was also accused of stealing her ex-husband's dog as a part of a divorce dispute over who should be the owner of the animal.
"He said 'I'm just going outside to play with the baby,' and Girdie said 'You're not taking my dog,' and she hit him behind his right ear with a pool ball inside of a pink and white sock," friend of the victim Keishian Bowan said.
She says the ex-wife then grabbed the dog and took off running into the woods behind a cemetery next to the home.
"I've never seen someone that unathletic run that fast," Bowan told WSAZ.
The attack gave the man serious injuries, but he was released from the hospital.
