Will Greenlee reported in his blog Off the Beat that police arrested 19-year-old Giovanna Borge on Sept. 27 and charged her with battery after a fight with her boyfriend at an apartment in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Her boyfriend accused her of shouting and squirting him with a water gun.
The affidavit says that in response to the water squirt attack, Borge's boyfriend poured water on his girlfriend's head and hit her with a pillow, after which the pair began shoving each other. Witnesses told police Giovanna started the fight, according to the affidavit, but she told police her boyfriend had hurt her in past fights.
"They all agreed that unprovoked, Giovanna started screaming at him. They then heard scuffling and banging noises. They all heard [name redacted] yelling 'get off of me, get off of me' which led them to believe Giovanna was aggressing on [name redacted]."
Police brought a soaked and upset — though uninjured — Giovanna to jail, Greenlee reported.

This isn't the first time a loaded water weapon has led to a criminal offense.
Water guns landed four mischievous young people in Massachusetts under arrest two years ago for driving around squirting residents of Methuen, including two elderly women, according to a report from the Merrimack Valley Eagle-Tribune at the time.
In a much older incident from 1992, a nine-year-old girl who was waiting for an ice cream truck received a water gun squirt to the eye from two troublesome teenagers who were later charged. One of the teens responsible went to the girl's home to apologize and gave her a balloon, the Baltimore Sun reported.
