Woman Cuts Boyfriend After He Refused To Pay For Her Birthday Gift

Police say she was mad he wouldn't pay her to get her hair and nails done. 

A Florida woman cut her boyfriend’s hand after an argument about her birthday gifts. According to a police report, Crystal A. Garlin, 32, of Fort Meyers, Florida was angry at her boyfriend after he refused to pay for her to get her hair and nails done for her birthday. The argument escalated to the point that she picked up a knife in a threatening manner. When her boyfriend tried to disarm her, she cut his hand.

Police say the incident occurred around 9 p.m. Friday night. The boyfriend became uncooperative after telling police what happened, refusing to answer any more questions, or telling them where to find the knife. He also refused medical treatment at the scene.

Garlin on the other hand, had a totally different story. She said she had been fighting with a relative, which her boyfriend tried to break up, and accidently locked himself outside the house. He then cut his hand on a broken window while trying to get back in. She was arrested and charged with battery causing great bodily harm and released on $10,000 bond.
