St. Lucie County, FL (December 14, 2018) – Police say that a woman was arrested in St. Lucie County after she demanded that her boyfriend have sex with her and then threw an object at him.
42-year-old Lorrie Anne Carroll was arrested on battery charges and resisting an officer without violence around 3 a.m. in the morning. When deputies arrived at the address, Carroll’s boyfriend answered and said that the two had been arguing all night because Carroll wanted to have sex and he didn’t want to.
According to the arrest report, Carroll continuously tried to have sex with him even when he told her to stop. He even took some time to go to the bar and, when he returned, she did the same thing.
When he continued to refuse, Carroll took a paint roller and tossed it at his head, then striking him in the chest and groin. Officers said that she was intoxicated at the time of the arrest.
