Woman Stabs Boyfriend After He Threatens Turtle: Cops

Authorities say a Palm Beach County woman has been arrested for stabbing her boyfriend after he threatened to hurt her turtle.

The sheriff's office reports that 53-year-old Marie Seymour of Lake Park faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in the Tuesday incident. She was released from jail after posting $3,000 bond Wednesday, records showed.

Seymour told deputies she was drinking with her boyfriend when he made the threat and then came after her.

Authorities haven't said where the man was stabbed or how badly he was hurt. The Palm Beach Post reports he was taken to a Palm Beach Gardens hospital.

The name of the turtle was not released.
