Florida Woman Arrested After Hitting Boyfriend Who Asked to Cuddle
Pinellas County Law Enforcement says that, Kiesel Anthony, 45, was in bed with her boyfriend around 2 AM Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021 when the 42-year-old victim “asked to cuddle with defendant and defendant said no.”
Anthony, apparently got mad at her boyfriend “for trying to cuddle,” and began yelling and screaming at him in their St. Petersburg home. After throwing a fan, Anthony “grabbed the pole from the fan and hit the victim in the back of the right leg, causing a visible injury.”
Anthony was arrested for domestic battery and booked into the Pinellas county jail.
She is being held on $2500 bond and a judge has ordered her to have no contact with the victim.
In February, Anthony was charged with battering the same man. She subsequently entered into a deferred prosecution agreement requiring her to complete a 12-month domestic violence program (which included 29 weeks of counseling).
Prosecutors have moved to revoke that agreement in light of Anthony’s new September 22nd, 2021 arrest.
