TREASURE ISLAND — Police arrested a woman for battering her live-in boyfriend when she finally worked her way up to a weapon he found dangerous.

Bonita P. Miller, 59, of 11701 First St. E, Apt.4, Treasure Island, is charged with domestic battery and is being held on $1,500 bond at Pinellas County Jail. She has two prior battery arrests but no convictions.

According to a Treasure Island police arrest report, Miller struck Michael Wilson with a can of air freshener and a potted plant before jabbing him in the back with a key. Wilson, who told police he had overheard his roommate of three months "talking about murder/suicide" that morning, called police when she wielded a knife. He was not stabbed.
