During an argument yesterday morning, a Florida Woman took apart her family’s artificial Christmas tree and proceeded to strike her longtime boyfriend with three sections of the fake fir, according to police.
Responding to a call about a disturbance at a Clearwater property, cops made a forced entry into the home Krystall Graham, 38, and the victim share with two children. Upon entering the residence around 7 AM, Graham and the victim were “actively engaged in a physical altercation,” investigators reported.
During a police interview, Graham said the couple began arguing “due to the victim setting the TV volume on too high while she was sleeping.” As a result, Graham said, she “squared up to the victim and was screaming in his face.”
Seen above, Graham also reportedly admitted that she “took apart an artificial Christmas tree, and threw three sections of the tree” at the 38-year-old victim. As detailed in an arrest affidavit, cops noted that the victim had scratches and abrasions on his face, neck, and stomach.
Graham’s two children–ages eight and two–were present during the confrontation. Graham and the victim, cops say, have been in a relationship for eight years and “have a child in common.”
Charged with domestic battery, Graham was booked into the Pinellas County jail on the misdemeanor count. She was released from custody on her own recognizance early this morning.
