FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- A Fairfield woman was arrested Tuesday, Feb. 3, on charges of assaulting her husband, leaving him with scratch marks from his stomach to his neck, in a fight over debt, police said.

Xiaojie Guo, 34, of Ryders Lane, said she and her husband had been arguing for hours over a possible divorce, then she threw a lint brush at him and hit him, police said.

When officers arrived at the Ryders Lane residence, Guo’s husband - who called police - was waiting in his vehicle in the driveway, according to police. He showed officers scratches on his neck, upper chest and stomach that he said were inflicted by his wife during the argument, authorities said.

According to police, Guo has $15,000 in credit card debt that her husband refuses to pay, which acted as a catalyst during the argument.

Guo has been charged with disorderly conduct and third-degree assault. She was held on $5,000 bond at police headquarters before being transported to St. Vincent's Medical Center for an unrelated medical matter.

Guo is due in court on Feb. 4.
