Florida Woman Arrested For Felony Attack With An Avocado At A Senior Living Community
You wouldn’t normally get felony battery charges from stemming from thrown vegetables at a senior living community. Or is avocado a fruit? Anyway, this is Florida. And things can get a little wild in St. Petersburg. 39 year old Karleen Biswanger was living with her 68 year old boyfriend at the Viridian Apartments 62+ senior community in Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. That’s a bit of an age gap. I’m guessing Karleen needed a place to stay and the 68 year old man enjoyed her companionship.
According to the arrest report from Pinellas County, Karleen had been living with the man for roughly a year and the two had been engaging in consensual sexual intercourse. Not sure why that’s in the police report, apparently they thought it was important.
From the report: “The defendant threw an avocado at the victim’s face causing injury to his right eye.” She also threw a metal hanging rod at him which struck him in the arm. A neighbor witnessed some of the avocado attack.
Karleen was arrested for battery on a person 65 years of age or older.
