Police: Cat Used As Weapon in Florida Domestic Dispute
A Florida Woman allegedly battered her girlfriend over the weekend, according to police reports, and of course, this domestic incident is particularly "Florida Woman."
According to an arrest report from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, 53-year-old Susan Freudenthal and her 44-year-old girlfriend were arguing Wednesday night over some "Fidelity issues."
During the argument, Freudenthal "swore that she was not cheating and was faithful" to the victim, the report says.
At one point, Freudenthal grabbed one of their cats, and "held it up in the victim’s face.” She swore on the life of the animal that she had not been cheating.
That's when the cat became distressed and scratched the victim's face. The officer said she “admitted to holding the animal close to the victim to prove her point and swearing on the life of the animal that she was not cheating.”
Freudenthal was arrested for domestic battery, a misdemeanor. She was released yesterday from the county jail on her own recognizance.
The arresting officer noted that Freudenthal was “polite and compliant."
The report states the battery that took place did not have a weapon seized, but has been marked as "FELINE."
Freudenthal has lived with the victim for four years and was arrested last year for allegedly punching her girlfriend in the mouth during a drunken argument about their relationship.
