Florida police have said that they have arrested a man accused of throwing a Bible at the back of his roommate’s head.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said that Steven Robert Moniz, 45, was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Saturday in Port Richey after his roommate, Kimberly Covas Shisgal, flagged down a passing deputy and said she had been struck in the back of the head with an unidentified object while taking out the garbage.
Moniz told deputies he threw a Bible at Shisgal because she was shouting at him and had a knife in her hand.
Deputies said they found a Bible with a bent cover on the kitchen table but found no evidence of a knife.
Moniz was charged with simple battery and taken to the Land O’Lakes jail in lieu of $150 bail.
