Couple Arrested After Their Swingers Party Goes Poorly, Get Hauled To Jail Naked
Tina Michelle Norris, 39, and her husband, James Albert Barfield, 56, of Tampa-St. Pete, decided that it would be a good idea to host their very own swingers party in their home.
But as the party got rolling, both Tina and James suddenly realized that this idea wasn't so awesome after all when she saw James getting it on with one of the ladies, and he got angry about her going downtown with two male guests.
According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, things got rather nasty. The couple got violent with each other. Deputies say Tina got a bloody lip from the fracas. James ended up with scratch marks on his neck and back, although one can't be sure if that was from the fight.
(Because of sex, you see.)
Both Tina and James were charged with domestic battery. Tina had a resisting arrest charged tagged on to that.
According to the arrest affidavit, the arresting officer says that Tina was "very intoxicated and uncooperative." She also wouldn't put her clothes on, even after cops told her to. The officer also found James naked in the house.
A roommate reportedly said she awoke to the sounds of shouting and yelling. When she went to see what was up, she saw a lot of pushing and shoving and nakedness. The roommate also told police the couple broke things as they fought. The roommate probably wondered why she never gets invited to these things when she sleeps two doors down, for crying out loud.
Police were unable to get statements from the other couples attending the party, but we're sure if they did, there would be a lot of, "Best. Party. EVER!" statements peppered throughout the police report.
