FORT PIERCE — A woman accused of throwing a table leg through the window of her home after her boyfriend refused to buy more beer faces a felony charge, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.
The boyfriend told police Tuesday night his long-time live-in girlfriend, Andrea Elizabeth Bathgate, got angry because the beer supply was exhausted and asked him to purchase more.
The affidavit gave this account:
The boyfriend, said Bathgate, 31, had been imbibing Natural Ice beer, described in the affidavit as “an economy brand high-alcohol beer beverage,” all day. The boyfriend didn’t want to buy her any more because she was “aggressive” when intoxicated. The boyfriend told Bathgate she needed to stop drinking, and refused to buy more beer. She cursed at him repeatedly, he told police.
The boyfriend told Bathgate to leave and that he’d leave if she wouldn’t. Bathgate allegedly tried to choke him before putting a “boxcutter razor” in her purse and walking out.
She broke a leg off a table outside and “threw the hard missile through a window of the residence, causing deadly shards of glass to be forcefully launched into the occupied residence,” the affidavit states.
Bathgate was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge and a felony charge of throwing a missile into a dwelling.
