It's hard to believe that a common-law marriage doesn't always go smoothly, but it can be true.
And if it is true, you don't want to be common-law married to Christa Nicole Parker. When she gets pissed, she does something about it.
Harlingen police say they got a domestic disturbance call and arrived at a home where a 51-year-old man said he had been in an argument with Parker, 33.
According to the police report:
The victim advised that one point PARKER began punching him with a closed fist. The victim stated that PARKER struck him approximately 15 times about his body and face. The victim then began packing items so that he could leave the residence, when PARKER
followed him into the bathroom area, and struck him over the head with a wine bottle, causing it to break.
"The victim managed to call a friend and asked him to notify the police," the report says, which seems to be a case of unnecessarily involving a middleman.
The victim had swelling and lacerations on his head and forearm, police say.
