LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — A Minnesota woman is accused of punching a 5-year-old boy in the face after his father spilled a drink on her at Oktoberfest in La Crosse.

A complaint filed in La Crosse County charges 32-year-old Angela Tuchek, of Austin, Minn., with physical abuse of a child and disorderly conduct. The complaint says the boy’s father tried to apologize for the accident last Saturday, but Tuchek grew angry, ripped the hat from his head, then swung and hit his son in the face.

A witness told investigators Tuchek and the man shoved each other and that Tuchek hit the boy when he tried to intervene. The La Crosse Tribune says Tuchek told police she didn’t mean to hit the boy.

Tuchek is scheduled in court Monday.
