A fight between a husband and wife ended up with Amazon's Alexa getting into the line of fire.

The Pasco Sheriff's Office said 62-year-old Terrance Jay Peterson used a gun to shoot at Alexa after his wife gave it a voice command.

Authorities did not say what his wife asked Alexa to do. However, after shooting at Alexa, Peterson slapped his wife in the face with an open hand.

Deputies said the slap knocked her glasses to the floor and caused a bruise on her cheek.

Peterson has been charged with domestic battery.
