Only in Florida -- a 22-year-old woman is under arrest for allegedly beating up her boyfriend, who happens to be 52 years older than her.
The Smoking Gun reports that Sierra Chaffin and Marcos Beita live together in Bradenton. Monday they got into a fight in which Chaffin “intentionally pushing her boyfriend whom she lives with, and her boyfriend is currently 74 years old,” according to a report from the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
The report goes on to say that the couple “had a physical intimate relationship and are currently residing together."
Chaffin, who has a history of drug arrests, is charged with battery of a person over age 65.
The incident was witnessed by Beita's physical therapist and a woman who was preparing his lunch. They say Chaffin pushed the elderly man, who did not “feel well enough to complete an affidavit.” But he told a deputy that Chaffin “pushed him in the stomach with both hands.”
Did we mention that Beita is recovering from recent open-heart surgery?
But before you think Beita is just a kindly old man, you should know that he was arrested four months ago for stealing from a person over the age of 65, as well as exploiting an elderly person. He is out on bail and is due in court later this month.
Here's his mug shot.
