Iowa woman accused of attacking family with motorized mop

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (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.

According to Des Moines Police, officers 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.
