A Florida man has been arrested on Saturday after allegedly stabbing his wife twice due to some messy fruit peelings. The man, 84-year-old West Palm Beach resident Uriel Bradshaw, has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
According to police reports, Bradshaw's altercation with his wife began over some messy mango peelings. Bradshaw had allegedly been eating mangoes in one of the bedrooms of their house, and when his 65-year-old wife walked in.
The arrest report further stated that Bradshaw's wife got very irritated because he was making such as big mess. He had been leaving mango peelings all over the bedroom floor.
An intense argument started after she pointed out the mess to her husband, eventually culminating with Bradshaw getting up and lunging at his wife multiple times with a steak knife. He managed to stab her twice, once on the right shoulder and another on her chest.
Bradshaw's wife then ran away and started banging on the walls of her house, trying to alert her daughter. Thankfully, she was heard and the police were immediately called.
Officers who responded to the call have stated that they found fresh wounds on Bradshaw's wife, as well as blood stains throughout the house. Bradshaw was promptly arrested and held on a $10,000 bond.
The 84-year-old Bradshaw has stated that while he remembers getting into an argument with his wife, he does not remember actually stabbing her.
While his wife appears to have escaped further injury, Bradshaw was nonetheless charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. So far, it is unknown if the 84-year-old has hired a lawyer to argue his case.
Prior to the incident, Bradshaw has so far been a pretty upstanding citizen, with court records stating that he has never had any felony charges filed against him before.
