ORLANDO, Fla. – A 31-year-old Orlando woman was arrested Sunday on suspicion of splashing bleach in her husband's face after they got into an argument about a woman whom she recently began dating.

Lakeisha Regina LeGrand was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery/permanent disfigurement.

According to an Orange County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit, LeGrand and her husband have been married for eight years, have four children together and live together in the same home.

Deputies said the couple got into an argument Saturday because LeGrand's husband does not like the woman whom LeGrand is dating and he does not want the woman around their children. He said LeGrand "recently discovered that she is gay," and it has caused stress on their relationship.

LeGrand's husband asked her to keep the woman away from their children, and LeGrand took the children and left the home, deputies said. Her husband said he also left and returned home Sunday.

He said the children told him that they were left alone with LeGrand's girlfriend, and he confronted her when she returned home, the affidavit said. She told him to "go back to where he came from" and he began to yell and throw boxes, deputies said.

LeGrand asked one of her children to get some bleach, but the child refused, so LeGrand grabbed a bottle from a closet, unscrewed the lid and splashed it on her husband's face, according to the affidavit.

The extent of the husband's injuries is not known.

LeGrand was arrested and booked into jail.
