FORT MYERS (CBSMiami/AP) — A birthday comes but once a year.
Authorities arrested a Florida woman they say cut her boyfriend because he wouldn’t pay for her to have her hair and nails done for her birthday.
Fort Myers police say 32-year-old Crystal Garlin was upset and grabbed a knife as they argued. Police say her boyfriend cut his wrist while trying to take the knife away Friday.
The News-Press reports he declined medical treatment.
Garlin had a different story for police. She says there was an argument outside the home with a relative and that her boyfriend tried to break up the fight, then locked the house and left.
Garlin said he cut his hand later trying to climb through a broken window.
She was charged with battery causing great bodily harm and released.
