CORAL SPRINGS, FL - A Coral Springs couple allegedly fighting over alcohol earlier this month ended with the wife charged with battery, a police report said.
Mary Leonard, 48, who has worked in child care and at a Youfit center in Coral Springs, was accused by her husband of pushing him and punching him in the head on May 2 in their Coral Springs home, the report said.
