A Davie man remained in the Broward County Jail Monday night accused of attacking his girlfriend with her cat, court records showed.
Stuart was arrested Thursday following an argument with his girlfriend. During the dispute, Broward Judge John “Jay” Hurley noted that Stuart allegedly injured the woman with her own pet.
“She was lying on the bed and you entered the bedroom holding something in your hand, head high, and she said you were yelling at her, ‘Look it’s going to die. It’s got no air,’ and at that point you threw the cat in her face,” the judge read from the arrest report.
The cat scratched the left side of her face near her left eye [and] her face was bleeding. He pushed her over, knocking the television and computer to the floor, the report stated.
“When the police got there you said, ‘Just take me to jail. I’m tired of this,’” the judge read. “Later on, it says you changed your mind and allegedly said, ‘Ok, I’m sorry, I’m calm, can you let me go?’”
Citing two previous convictions for battery, the judge set Stuart’s bond at $16,500 with orders to stay away from his girlfriend and her pet.
“That’s based on the level of violence and the court’s concern for the safety of her and the cat,” Hurley said.
