Woman held for Furby attack on boyfriend

Furby /PA

US police have arrested a woman for assaulting her live-in boyfriend with a Furby toy during a row over a post on Facebook.

Officers say Ashley Trimmer, 27, of Moor township, Pennsylvania, threw the soft toy at her boyfriend, William Ley, striking him on the side of his face.

She then allegedly threw a Sony Playstation controller at the other side of his head, causing some bleeding, reports The Smoking Gun.

Moon police Chief Leo McCarthy told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that officers had to make an arrest when people were injured in cases of domestic assault, no matter how minor.

Trimmer was charged with simple assault after the incident, which happened in the early hours of the morning. She was released after her mother posted $2,000 bail.
