The cheating husband took a bullet to the testicles after his wife of 16 years allegedly shot him in the knee for having an affair with another woman.
Mirror Online reports that the woman, identified as Victoria Reid, held her husband up at gun point at their home in Melbourne, Florida, United States, after confronting him about his affair with another woman, according to Brevard County Sheriff's Office.
Officers say she threatened to shoot him in the face and chest after forcing him to sit on their sofa to discuss his infidelity on Wednesday.
The 60-year-old, who suffers from post traumatic stress, then threatened to "maim" him so he would be struck with the same condition, police said.
According to police Reid eventually shot her husband in the left knee, but the bullet is said to have travelled up his thigh and lodged in one of his testicles.
Reid is being held in custody charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and domestic violence after she was arrested in Rockledge.
Her unnamed husband is said to be recovering in hospital, although his condition is not known.
