A woman who won a battle with her boyfriend over a remote control is paying a legal price for her victory.

Amber L. Stanmets smacked her boyfriend on the left side of his face and bit him on top of his right hand when he tried to take the remote away from her in their apartment at 416 South Main St., Bangor, Northampton Co., at about 11 p.m. Tuesday, officials said.

Police saw teeth marks on Stanmets' boyfriend's hand when they arrived, officials noted.


Stanmets, 21, was arraigned early Wednesday morning on assault and harassment charges and released on $5,000 unsecured bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 11 a.m. Aug. 30.
