    A St. Petersburg woman is being held on bond after being arrested for giving her last $50 to a drug dealer and then thinking twice about the transaction, authorities said.

    Katrina Tisdale, 47, called 911 to tell officers she wanted the money she had just spent on marijuana and cocaine back, according to St. Petersburg Police.

    The Miami-Dade judge who was flipped off last month by a teen facing a Xanax possession charge had his hands full yet again Monday morning when a woman accused of stabbing her husband several times became hysterical when she was told she'd be held without bond. Blanca Gemma Regalado, 53, appeared before Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat on an attempted felony murder charge. She appeared in a wheelchair, claiming that her husband broke her leg, and began wailing and screaming after Rodriguez-Chomat informed her she'd be staying in jail.

    Tisdale was arrested after a similar incident in July 2011 after she lost $40 during another drug transaction, Puetz said. She told officers she would report a rape if they did not get her money back, so she was charged with filing a false police report, he said.

    Tisdale's bond is set at $100.
