Woman Busted For Domestic Assault After Boyfriend Narrowly Avoids A Bible Thumping

A Florida Woman is facing an assault charge after throwing a Bible at her boyfriend’s head, according to police who say the victim “had to duck to avoid being hit with the Holy Book.”

During an argument Sunday afternoon in the St. Petersburg home she shares with the man, Terry Slaughter “picked up a Bible and threw it at the victim, almost striking him in the head,” police charge.

The man, cops say, “was in fear of being hit in the head with the Bible, and had to duck to avoid being hit with the Holy Book” tossed by the 51-year-old Slaughter (who is also accused of breaking her beau’s cell phone).

Seen at right, Slaughter denied throwing the Bible, claiming that the victim was “making this up to get her in trouble.”

Charged with assault and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors, Slaughter was booked into the county jail and released yesterday afternoon on her own recognizance. She was ordered by a judge to have no contact with the victim.

Slaughter, however, returned to her residence and “confronted” the victim, cops say. During an ensuing argument, she allegedly “scratched the victim’s neck, causing a visible injury.” Slaughter was arrested for domestic battery and booked into the county jail, where she is being held in lieu of $5000 bond.

Slaughter was freed from a Florida state prison in March 2018 after serving about 20 years for a second-degree murder conviction.
