DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines woman accused of attacking her family with a Swiffer Wet Jet has been arrested on charges of domestic abuse and assault.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1Ikkf0R ) that police arrived at the woman’s home Monday on reports of child endangerment and found the 45-year-old woman visibly upset. She told police her husband and son had attacked her.

But family members told a different story - namely that the woman had attacked them with the motorized mop.

The son said his parents argue a lot and that he had caught the attack on video using his cellphone. Police reviewed the video and say it showed the woman hitting her family members with the Swiffer.
