The argument soon turned violent. Carter’s boyfriend told police that Carter broke his television and a glass door. Carter then picked up a pickax and approached her boyfriend, Gluck said. The man told police he was able to take the pickax from Carter.
Carter told police she did not intend to hit her boyfriend with the pickax; she was trying to hit a bench, the officer said. Both Carter and her boyfriend were “intoxicated but coherent” during the incident, the officer said.
