A 31-year-old Bradenton, Fla. woman was charged with domestic battery after she attacked her live-in boyfriend with a kitchen knife because he wouldn’t cuddle. They had been drinking in their home prior to the incident.
An argument started early Saturday when the man refused to “cuddle” with Rumph when they went to bed, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case.
The argument turned physical when Rumph grabbed the man’s shirt, causing it to tear.
The man tried to leave the apartment, but Rumph didn’t want him to leave.
“At one point during the argument Shavonna had picked up a kitchen knife as if she was going to use it to hurt or stab” her boyfriend, but the man told deputies he was not worried about being hurt, according to the report.
In the report, Rumph is quoted as telling deputies: “We got into an argument because (her boyfriend) would not cuddle with me.”
Rumph faces a charge of misdemeanor domestic battery. She was released from jail Sunday on a $250 bond.
