Police: Woman attacks boyfriend with knife in birthday fight over hair, nails

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — 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 the argument escalated. Police say her boyfriend was wounded trying to take the knife away from her 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 on $10,000 bond.
