Woman in Florida Arrested for Squirting Boyfriend With Squirt Gun
At it’s core, this is a story about domestic violence, however how the incident started and what the suspect was ultimately arrested for venture into the just plain weird.
A Florida woman was ultimately taken to jail and charged with “squirting water on (her boyfriend) to antagonize and agitate him against his wishes” using a water gun.
Of course, things escalated from there.
Here is a transcription of the available arrest report,
I spoke first to the female half, Giovanna Borge, who was outside the apartment. She was in an upset/excited state, and was experiencing rapid shallow breathing. Giovanna was able to tell me that her boyfriend of about a year, (boyfriend) said something to her she did not like. Giovanna then took a water pistol and squirted him with water.
(boyfriend) then responded by dumping a container of water on her. She continued that he then hit her with a pillow and there was mutual shoving with her ending up in the tub in the bathroom. Giovanna had no visible injuries but stated she has been injured in domestics by (boyfriend) in the past which were unreported to Law Enforcement.
I spoke to (boyfriend) who said that he was in his room when Giovanna came in and started screaming at him, then squirted him with a water pistol. He then poured water on her and also corroborated the mutual shoving. (boyfriend) was not injured.
I spoke also to the three witnesses who did not see the altercation, but heard it as they were all in the apartment. (Witness) and (witness) were all consistent in that (boyfriend) was quiet in the bedroom. They thought he was asleep but he was actually playing Xbox quietly. They all agreed that unprovoked, Giovanna started screaming at him. They then heard scuffling and banging noises. They all heard (boyfriend) yelling “get off me, get off of me” which led them to believe Giovanna was aggressing on.
Based upon statements from both suspect and victim, and the three witnesses, investigation revealed that Giovanna was the PRIMARY AGGRESSOR in the incident today.
I request a UCI responded to take photographs. Ofc. C. Durbin responded to photograph. Also, Giovanna was continuing to have difficulty breathing and appeared to be worsening. I requested Rescue and provided Giovanna with a paper bag to breathe into to help stabilize her hyperventilation. Rescue responded, attended to Giovanna who refused transport, and departed.
I placed Giovanna under arrest for Simple Battery/Domestic Violence under F.S. 784.03 for squirting water on (boyfriend) to antagonize and agitate him against his wishes. I handcuffed Giovanna in front to make it easier for her to breathe, checked for fit, and double-locked the handcuffs. I transported her to St Lucie Co Jail without incident.
