Florida Woman Arrested After Squirting Boyfriend With Water Gun
Here in Florida we're still not quite sure who to arrest for shooting people with actual guns, but don't you even think about shooting someone with a squirt gun. Your dry ass may be going to jail if you dare make anyone else's soggy.
For example, Giovanna Borge, 19, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested late last month for squirting her boyfriend.
Literally, police showed up to an apartment and arrested her on charges of battery "for squirting water on (her boyfriend) to antagonize and agitate him against his wishes." That's directly from the police affidavit according to WPTV.
Borge told police that her boyfriend had "said something to her she did not like," so that's why she decided to squirt him.
The unnamed boyfriend responded by dumping a cup of water on her head and hitting her with a pillow. The two then engaged in mutual shoving. The boyfriend was not charged.
Three other people in the house claim they didn't see the water gun shooting go down, but did say they heard Borge screaming at her boyfriend "unprovoked," and heard the man shout "get off of me, get off of me."
However, Borge claimed that the boyfriend had a history of physically abusing her in the past but she had never pressed charges before.
Borge was in a nervous state when police showed up, and police gave her a bag to blow in to calm down her fast breathing before taking her to jail.
The arrest report does not mention any actual injuries the boyfriend sustained. So good job, Port St. Lucie Police Department.
