BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Several people fearing that a woman was being attacked in East Boca Raton called 911 late Sunday night to report that a woman was screaming, “you’re hurting me!” Boca Raton Police rushed to the scene to find the story to be different than what witnesses feared.

Gina White and her boyfriend, according to a police report, were leaving the iPic Movie Theater in Mizner Park when they started arguing. As they drove home, the argument continued until they arrived at their house in the 1100 block of SW 21st Street. The boyfriend, apparently trying to extract himself from the situation, tried to leave, but Gina White, 35, pulled his hair to stop him. She screamed, “you’re hurting me!” She later told police that the “hurt” was the emotional pain she was feeling, and nothing physical.

The following is the narrative written by a responding Boca Raton Police Department officer:

According to White, she and Victim 1 have been dating for five years and live together. White stated she and Victim 1 recently came home from a movie and had a verbal argument.

White stated Victim 1 was trying to leave the house and began to yell, “You’re Hurting Me.” White stated she was screaming at Victim 1 to convince him to stay and not leave the residence. White advised Victim 1 was not physically hurting her but only mentally hurting her. White stated she was screaming to convince Victim 1 to stay and not leave.

I then spoke with Victim 1 separately. According to Victim 1, they were at IPIC and had been verbally arguing ever since they left the movie theater. Victim 1 stated he was driving the vehicle when all of a sudden, White pulled his hair. Victim 1 then pulled the vehicle to the side of the road and exited the vehicle. Victim 1 and White began to argue on the side of the road, and Victim 1 was trying to walk away. I then asked Victim if White pushed him, and he stated, “Yes, but I don’t want to say anything else.” White then entered the vehicle and got into the driver’s seat. Victim 1 did not want to enter the vehicle but finally entered the vehicle after they were causing a scene. Victim 1 stated when they got into their driveway, the argument continued, and their neighbors began to come outside. Victim 1 stated he went inside, and when he saw the police, he opened the door. Victim 1 stated at no time was he physical towards White and had no physical injuries. Photos of Victim 1 were taken and properly classified.

I then spoke with White again. White stated Victim 1 was driving the vehicle after they left the movies and got into a verbal argument. White advised Victim 1 pulled over on 1800 S Dixie Highway and tried to exit the vehicle. White stated she pulled Victim 1 by his jacket and his hair to prevent him from leaving the vehicle, White stated she did not push Victim 1 and was only trying to prevent him from leaving. White confirmed when they got back home, the argument was verbal only and was only screaming for attention to get Victim 1 to stay and not leave. White had no physical injuries.

Gina White was charged with “battery.” She was arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 12:45 a.m. Monday. After more than twelve hours behind bars, White was released on her own recognizance at 12:59 p.m. A court date is pending. An order of “no contact” between White and the victim is now in effect.
