A police report says 25-year-old Jessica Candage of Yarmouth was spotted Sunday evening by a Portland officer who said it appeared she was preventing her husband from walking toward him. The officer then saw Candage punch her husband, Craig, in the face several times.

Craig Candage told the Portland Press Herald the incident was his fault and his wife shouldn't have been charged.

Jessica Candage competed on "American Idol" under the stage name Jessica Cunningham. She twice made it to the final 24. When last voted off the show, she responded to the judges' rejection by delivering a two-fisted, obscene gesture.

She's due in court June 30.
