A WOMAN was arrested after biting her husband’s face over an argument about whether actress Hilary Duff appeared in an ad they had seen on TV.
Brandi Lester, 26, of Kentucky was arrested and charged with assault after the biting episode.
WYMT reports that Ethan Lester told police the pair had gotten into a heated argument over whether Duff was on a particular commercial they had seen.

Mr Lester said he tried to give his wife a kiss on the forehead to smooth things over but she bit him on the face.
He said the only reason police were called was because he was concerned about his wife’s welfare.
“The 911 call states that I was afraid she would hurt herself,” he said.
Mr Lester says his wife is a nonviolent person and believes she should not have been arrested. He said the couple are doing it tough.

“Me and my wife has of course been on edge as most families are around the holidays, it’s tough,” he said. “I’m unemployed at the current moment looking for work and I guess it just took one simple, one simple misunderstanding.”
The couple are not allowed to have contact with one another until a March court date.
It is unclear whether the actress on the ad was in fact Duff, who is currently starring in a series by Melrose Place creator Darren Star called Younger.
Sutton Foster plays a 40-year-old woman who pretends to be 26 to get a job at a publishing company in New York City and Duff is the book editor co-worker who becomes her friend.
