BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman, accused by her boyfriend of cheating, apparently responded to his allegation by attacking him with “bear spray.”
Bear Spray is a capsaicin aerosol used, as its name suggests, to keep bears away.
Christina Savage, of the 1300 block of SW 1st Avenue in Boca Raton, allegedly told police that she didn’t know so much spray would come out when she pushed the button.
From the police report: “On arrival, I met with white female Christina Savage who stated that she and her boyfriend were arguing about infidelity issues. Savage stated she was angry about [her boyfriend] accusing her of cheating. Savage stated she went to their bedroom, retrieved bear spray, and returned to the living room where the two were arguing.”
“Savage stated she then began to video [her boyfriend] on her cell phone of her while holding the bear spray in her other hand. She eventually propped the phone against the bottle of bear spray on the kitchen counter. Savage stated [her boyfriend] got off the couch, took her phone from her, and returned back to the couch hiding the phone behind his back from her. Savage stated she then grabbed the bear spray and walked to the couch to confront [her boyfriend] to get her phone from her back. Savage stated [the boyfriend] jumped up from a laying position on the couch and she sprayed bear spray across his face.”
Police asked if this was an accidental discharged and, according to the report, she stated “I didn’t know that much would come out.”
Wrote police: “The boyfriend was unable to provide a coherent statement due to the effects of the bear spray and having consumed alcohol this evening.”
Concluded the investigating officer: “Based on my investigation and Christina Savage admitting to intentionally spraying her boyfriend in the face with bear spray, Christina Savage was charged with Domestic Simple Battery (F.S.S. 784. 03 (1A1)). She was transported to BRPD to be processed and then transported to the Palm Beach County Jail.”
Savage, 19, was booked into jail at 4:52 a.m. Monday. She was released on her own recognizance at 1:22 Monday afternoon. A judge ordered her to stay away from bear spray, and to have “no violent contact” with her boyfriend, as the case plays out.
