A Florida woman outraged by her husband’s supposed infidelity faces multiple charges after allegedly shooting the man in the knee — but in a freak occurrence, the bullet didn’t stay there, cops say.
The bullet ricocheted its way to his testicles.
As the Toronto Sun claimed, the “fuming Florida woman went nuts…”
The outcome is perhaps a philander’s or an innocent man’s worst nightmare.
The suspect in this incident, identified in multiple media reports as Victoria Reid, 60, faces charges that reportedly include aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, and aggravated assault in the disturbing incident that occurred in the city of Melbourne.
She is or was being held in the Brevard County Jail on a $35,000 bond, the Daily Mail indicated.
“According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Reid had a gun and confronted her husband of 16 years to discuss his affair. Reid demanded that her husband sit on the couch and told him that she was going to maim him and give him post-traumatic stress disorder, which she said she also suffers, according to deputies,” News6 Orlando reported.
After threatening to shoot her hubby in the face and chest, “Reid shot her husband in his left knee, but the bullet traveled up his thigh and lodged in his testicles, according to the Sheriff’s Office.”
Various media accounts have not updated the status of the victim, whose condition still remains unknown as a result of the gruesome bullet wound that he suffered last Wednesday.
“When it comes to Florida, anything can happen… there’s no shortage of interesting events coming out of the Sunshine State,” Complex observed about the incident involving the confrontation over an alleged extramarital affair that led to the groin injury.
Separately, as the Inquisitr previously reported, a Romanian woman got so mad at her husband for not bringing her flowers and/or chipping in with the housework on International Women’s Day 2016 that she ripped off one of his testicles with her bare hands. Other accounts suggested the wife stabbed her husband in the genitals. Police are investigating.
The Inquisitr has also chronicled the horrible misadventure of a Russian TV presenter who met a woman in a bar and then accompanied her to a sauna. When he woke up the next morning after apparently being drugged, he made the horrible discovery that his testicles had been removed in some kind of black market criminal organ harvesting scheme.
In Ohio, a woman was so disappointed that her husband failed to buy her a Valentine’s Day 2016 gift that she allegedly struck him in the head with a mini baseball bat. He was knocked unconscious, but declined medical treatment when cops arrived. The wife was charged with domestic violence. Unlike the earlier cases, the victim’s private parts were fortunately spared.
A new app supposedly provides a more peaceful way of determining if your significant other is cheating, at least if the infidelity is facilitated via Tinder. As the Inquisitr has just detailed, Swipe Buster apparently enables somebody to see if their partner (or boss, or friend, or ex-flame, or parent) is active on the hook-up Tinder instant messenger. For about a $5 fee, the user can enter some basic information like name, approximate age, and/or location into Swipe Buster. The app retrieves the information from the Tinder interface, at least until Tinder comes up with a new technology to lock out this form of information gathering.
