A Florida woman is facing a criminal battery charge after she reportedly punched her girlfriend for “talking in her sleep about an ex,” authorities say.

 

Alexis Talley, 23, was taken into custody over the weekend after a neighbor reported hearing a fight in the apartment Talley shares with her 21-year-old girlfriend, according to her arrest report. When officers arrived, the unidentified victim told them she’d been awoken by Talley, who was hammering her on the face because she’d been talking about an ex in her sleep, per the report. Arresting officers noted the woman displayed “visible swelling to the right side of her face consistent with her statement.”

 

Although Talley was released earlier this week on a $2,500 bond, a Florida judge prohibited her from making contact with the victim.
