A Florida model is accused of stabbing her boyfriend after the couple fought about his dog eating her marijuana.
The boyfriend, Keith Wiggins, claims that Shadae Scott repeatedly stabbed him during a fight that began when his dog consumed her stash of marijuana. She was in the process of kicking him out of the apartment, Wiggins said, when he couldn’t find his computer. At that point, he alleges she stabbed him.
Scott, however, told Sheriff’s Deputy Laughten Hall a different story. She claims that the couple was arguing over dinner plans, and that the argument became physical when she tried to leave the apartment. “During one of the many times during the argument, Wiggins walked into the knife and cut himself,” she told police according to the arrest report.
The judge set her bond at $3,500, and prohibited her from possessing a knife or being within 500 feet of her boyfriend.
The fate of the dog is unknown, but according to the Pet Poison hotline, marijuana intoxication in dogs can lead to “severe depression” and “walking drunk,” though it’s not considered fatal.
