FROM THE POLICE BLOTTER
(The Smoking Gun) A Florida woman was arrested early Saturday for battering her live-in boyfriend after he refused to “cuddle” with her when they went to bed, police report.
Shavonna Rumph, 31, and Henry Price, 33, “had been drinking together at their residence and had been doing so throughout the night,”according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.
The couple subsequently quarreled, a deputy reported, “over Henry refusing to ‘cuddle’ with Shavonna when they went to bed.” The argument “turned physical when Shavonna grabbed Henry by the shirt, causing it to tear.” Price then attempted to leave the couple’s Bradenton residence to “prevent any further argument and Shavonna 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 Henry,” noted investigators, who added that neither party was injured during the confrontation.
Rumph, pictured above, was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and booked into the county jail, from which she was released Sunday.
