FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities arrested a Florida woman they say cut her boyfriend because he wouldn’t pay for her to have her hair and nails done for her birthday.

Fort Myers police say 32-year-old Crystal Garlin was upset and grabbed a knife as they argued. Police say her boyfriend cut his wrist trying to take the knife away Friday.

The News-Press (https://tinyurl.com/zgvnk5m) reports he declined medical treatment.

Garlin had a different story for police. She says there was an argument outside the home with a relative and that her boyfriend tried to break up the fight, then locked the house and left. Garlin said he cut his hand later trying to climb through a broken window.

She was charged with battery causing great bodily harm and released.
