Tammy Hiser doesn't like being ignored.
Her boyfriend, Andrew Whitaker, found that out Monday night when she threatened him with an ax, because he wouldn't talk to her, according to the Associated Press.
The incident began when Whitaker, 28, picked up the 34-year-old Hiser at Biggins, the Daytona Beach strip club where she works.
Hiser reportedly tried to talk with her boyfriend, but Whitaker ignored her because he was mad she was intoxicated.
“She is an entertainer, a dancer,” Whitaker told the Daytona Beach News-Journal. “And that is where the problem is because she drinks and drinks at work.”
Whitaker told police that Hiser's drinking was so bad that it got the couple kicked out of his mom's home, forcing them to stay in a hotel.
Hiser was allegedly so angry by Whitaker's silent treatment that she allegedly punched him repeatedly in the face until they got to the hotel where they were staying.
When the couple got to the hotel, Whitaker ran up to the room.
Hiser showed up there a few minutes later holding an ax. She allegedly told the victim that she would hit him with the ax if he called police, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
When Whitaker walked towards Hiser, she allegedly swung the ax at him, but he was able to take it away from her before he was hit.
"Her coordination was terrible so she was just slushing around," he said in the police report.
Whitaker called police, who arrested Hiser on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery causing bodily harm.
As of Wednesday, she's behind bars on $3,000 bail.
Hiser was also arrested for battery on Sept. 18 for allegedly beating Whitaker after he said he'd break up with her if she didn't stop drinking.
Despite that fight, Whitaker told the Orlando Sentinel he is trying to get the felony charge dropped.
He told the paper: "I see spending the rest of my life with her."
