Dispute shifts from marriage talk to flying knives


Dispute shifts from marriage to flying knives

The argument started over a marriage proposal and ended when the woman threw several knives at her boyfriend, authorities said. Celeste Irene Lagrant, 39, of Holiday was arrested Saturday on charges of domestic battery and aggravated domestic assault. Here's what happened, according to the Sheriff's Office: Lagrant and her boyfriend, Bruce Montle, were at home Saturday night when they started arguing about a marriage proposal. It's unclear whether one was actually made. During the dispute, Lagrant started throwing knives at Montle, who fled and called 911. When deputies arrived, Montle told them Lagrant had punched and slapped him, inflicting scratches and bruises. Lagrant would not speak with deputies. She was released on her own recognizance Sunday morning.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
