BOCA RATON, FL ( — It’s one thing to tell your spouse to stop talking. It’s something to use physical force to make it happen. But that’s what Boca Raton Police say 72 year old Nancy Gasko did.

Gasko, of Strathmore Lane in Delray Beach, allegedly “covered her husband’s mouth and nose after he started yelling at her,” according to police.

She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on one count of battery on a person 65 years of age or older.

Gasko was released on her own recognizance.
