SPRING HILL - A Spring Hill woman was arrested Saturday after allegedly grabbing her boyfriend's genitals as he was trying to flush her marijuana down the toilet.

According to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit Bethany Ann Bowe, 28, was in a verbal argument with her live-in boyfriend, and went into the garage to smoke marijuana.

Her boyfriend, who told deputies he found marijuana earlier in a closet, went into the garage and took the glass pipe from her, telling Bowe he was going to flush the rest of the marijuana down the toilet.

The report states Bowe's boyfriend ran to the bathroom, started emptying the bag all over the sink and countertop, as well as another baggie of marijuana from a Mason jar there, and then smashed the glass pipe on the floor.

He told deputies Bowe pushed her way through the door, grabbed the Mason jar from him, and threw it at his right arm, deflecting off of him and shattering in the sink. He then told deputies she grabbed his genitals and twisted them, attempting to get one of the marijuana bags back.

He then kicked Bowe in the face so she would release his testicles, according to the report.

The boyfriend told deputies he broke free, took his cell phone and told Bowe he was calling 911 before Bowe took the cell phone from him, and threw it on the ground, dislodging the back cover and battery.

The boyfriend told deputies he was unable to find the battery, and they later found it under the bed closest to the bathroom, according to the report.

The boyfriend said he got his second cell phone and called 911 again, and Bowe left the home before deputies arrived. She later returned in her vehicle, according to the report, and Bowe denied her boyfriend's accusations, saying he attack her.

She also said he punched her in the face several times, choked her neck with his hands, and threw her on top of the broken glass, according to the report.

The report shows Bowe had a small cut inside her bottom lip, and several small cuts on her feet from the broken glass. She also told deputies the glass pipe, marijuana, and Mason jar were hers, and that her boyfriend does not smoke marijuana.

She was arrested and charged with domestic battery, obstructing justice, and possession of marijuana. She is being held without bond for the domestic battery and obstructing justice charges, and $500 bond for the possession of marijuana charge.

Jail records show neither Bowe or her boyfriend have never been arrested in the past.
