— A Lehigh Acres woman is accused of punching her fiance in the face outside of the Seminole Casino in Immokalee after she asked for more money to gamble and he only had $7.

Shlanda Yvette James, 36, was arrested Thursday near the main entrance of the casino. James's fiance was spitting blood on the ground when deputies arrived and asking James why she hit him.

Surveillance video showed the couple left the casino fighting, with James' fiance pulling her hair and the two shoving each other. He had begun walking away when she punched him.
