Florida Woman Arrested After Throwing Avocado At Elderly Boyfriend’s Head

A Florida woman is now in police custody after allegedly throwing an avocado at her boyfriend’s head, Law And Crime reported.

On March 12, at around 7:45 P.M., deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a domestic disturbance. When they arrived to the home, a 68-year-old man notified them that his girlfriend, 39-year-old Karleen Jame Biswanger had attacked him with multiple objects during a heated argument.

“The defendant threw an avocado at the victim’s face, causing injury to his right eye,” police records state. “The defendant also threw a metal hanging rod at the victim, causing injuries to his upper right arm and forearm.”

Biswanger was arrested and charged with domestic battery on a person 65 years of age or older for the assault.

State court records reveal that this incident is not the first time the suspect has been arrested for domestic violence or throwing objects at her victims. In 2022, Biswanger was arrested for throwing a “9-inch cardboard box full of writing utensils at her father, striking him in the upper right chest.” In 2015, she was arrested for punching her then boyfriend in the face multiple times, resulting a cut above his left eye.
