Police say Sample had a handgun during the fight and fired a single shot, striking the man in his lower right leg.

Police responded to the scene, and Sample reportedly did not dispute that she possessed the handgun used in the assault and admitted to shooting her husband.

Sample was arrested and charged with first-degree domestic violence, a class A felony, and booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail.

She was no longer listed as an inmate Tuesday afternoon, which may indicate she has been released on bond, which was set at $10,000.
