WALDO, Maine -- Police say a Maine woman has been arrested after shaving her boyfriend's head while he was sleeping.

Authorities say 35-year-old Mindy Lavoie of Waldo kept her promise that if her boyfriend ever came home drunk again, she'd shave his head.

The Waldo County Sheriff's office says the couple got into a fight after 36-year-old Thomas A. Thomas woke up. A neighbor called police on Monday night to report a domestic fight.

The Bangor Daily News reports that Lavoie has been charged with domestic violence assault. Thomas has been charged with violating the conditions of release for a prior offense.

It was done with mutual consent. We don't call sex "rape" if both (or more) parties agreed to it either.

I fully agree, it is not called rape if she doesn't say NO!, that is why I always carry an extra sock with me ... the wife seems to be happy

"Authorities say 35-year-old Mindy Lavoie of Waldo kept her promise that if her boyfriend ever came home drunk again, she'd shave his head."

Well, re-reading that sentence you could interpret it both ways I guess. She could have said: "I'll shave your head if you come home drunk one more time" out of anger. Or the boyfriend could have asked her to do so as a punishment: "I won't do it ever again, if I do you can shave my head."

If it's the second it's mutual consent.

I highly, highly doubt he agreed to it.

not to mention he was drunk, you cant consent, but that only works if you are the chick. becasue you know, if the dude was super drunk and the chick was drunk, she obviously was the one who couldnt make a choice.

If he had consented then the police wouldn't have been involved. It really is that simple. It is assault.

I'd be annoyed if someone shaved my head, I would flip tables if someone cut my eyebrows.

Maybe assault to his pride... but nothing else. Hair grows back. It was harmless. Society is in deep **** when we consider this to be a valid thing to arrest someone over...

So maybe theft isnt a crime, after all you can get it back, its harmless.
