OCSO: Holt Woman Attacked Boyfriend with Hammer

Okaloosa County, Fla. - A Holt man says an argument with his live-in girlfriend ended with her picking up a hammer from the floorboard of their car and striking him in the head several times, Okaloosa Sheriff's deputies wrote in a news release. 

Megan Ostman, 28, is charged with aggravated battery in connection with the incident which took place around five p.m. off Log Lake Road Tuesday. A witness told deputies he spotted 45-year-old Steven Bashore bleeding near a car and stopped to see if he had been in a crash. The witness said Bashore said he did not need any help and waved him off.

Responding Okaloosa deputies found the pair at River’s Edge Campground where Ostman admitted hitting Bashore in the head with a hammer several times “due to a look he gave her”.
