Ex-lover assaulted in fight over hair straightener

A FIGHT between two female ex-lovers over a hair straightener has landed a Maryborough woman in court.

Following a relationship break-down, beauty therapist Alexandra Anne Slama went to retrieve personal belongings from her former flame's home in Tinana.

Maryborough Magistrates Court heard Slama hit her 25-year-old former partner after she refused to give back a hair straightener.

An argument between the two followed and moved into the living room of the home on May 1.

Slama pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm.

Her defence lawyer Travis George said the incident happened at a stressful time for Slama.

Along with the relationship ending, Slama's father had recently had a heart transplant.

The victim's new partner was also present when Slama went to get her things.

"That heightened the emotions of the situation," Mr George said.

"Ultimately, the incident flared up over a hair straightener."

She was fined $750.

No conviction was recorded.
