LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a Lincoln woman hit her boyfriend with a pry bar because she was angry about his snoring.

Lincoln police say 45-year-old Elizabeth Ellen Hogrefe hit the 58-year-old man early Monday while the couple stayed at a motel. The man told police he woke up in the motel room to Hogrefe yelling at him and hitting him in the back with a steel pry bar.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1JxxBZF ) the man stumbled out of the room and someone called authorities. A police spokeswoman says he was found later at a nearby convenience store with injuries consistent with being hit with a pry bar.

Hogrefe was placed into custody. She faces a misdemeanor domestic assault charge. Court records do not list an attorney.
