BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A woman is booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend for urinating in the bed.
On Friday, Jan. 14, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives were called to a hospital and learned from the victim that his girlfriend, Briana Lacost, 25, became enraged at him for urinating in the bed. The victim told deputies that he and Lacost had been out drinking and she woke him up and started hitting him, according to arrest documents.
Arrest documents say the victim told deputies that he then tried to distance himself but she charged at him with a knife and stabbed him in the torso.
