IMMOKALEE, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local woman was arrested after stabbing her boyfriend because, as she told authorities, he “farted in her face.”
Deputies with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint last week regarding a dispute between 37-year-old Deborah Burns and her boyfriend, Willie Butler.
The trouble began when Butler reportedly “walked by her and farted in her face,” according to an arrest affidavit obtained by WESH Orlando.
Burns and Butler soon got into a fight about it, which culminated with Butler chasing Burns into the kitchen. There, he picked up a knife and threw it at her.
He missed however, which gave Burns the opportunity to pick up the knife and throw it back at him. She successfully hit him in the stomach with it, the station learned.
The police were called to the scene, and Burns was arrested after police learned what had happened.
She was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and taken to the county jail, where she was held on a $50,000 bond.
