Louisiana Woman Arrested For Stabbing Boyfriend After He Urinated In Their Bed

On Saturday, January 14th, deputies of the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office in Baton Rouge, Louisiana responded to a stabbing victim at a local hospital, New York Post reported. The alleged victim, who was being treated for a punctured lung and stab wound on the left side of his torso, claims that he was stabbed by his girlfriend for urinating in their bed in his sleep after a night of heavy drinking.

The suspect, Briana Lacost, tells a different story. She claims that though she did wake up her boyfriend for urinating in their bed and began to yell at him, he had attacked her first. The 25-year-old told police that in the middle of her confronting him, her boyfriend began hitting and choking her. After attempting to fight the bed-wetter off, she allegedly stabbed him in self-defense.

After the incident occurred, Lacost performed simple first aid, but his injuries were too great and she took him to a nearby hospital. There, she was arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder.
