Woman Arrested After Stabbing Lizard
San Carlos, CA — Deputies arrested a San Carlos woman who allegedly stabbed a bearded dragon lizard during an argument with the pet’s owner early Saturday morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
After receiving a report of a domestic dispute, deputies responded to the 1000 block of Crestview Drive around 3:40 a.m. They found a man, who told deputies that 37-year-old Shawna Kim Apour stabbed his pet lizard during a fight.
The couple had a prior relationship, but were not married. The victim, who was not seriously injured, told deputies Apour had left the home on foot.
Deputies replied, “Holy fucking shit! A talking lizard!” They then swore off weed and gave pursuit.
The deputies were able to find Apour a short distance from the house, but when they approached her, she brandished the lizard-stabbing knife and snarled mightily. She refused to put down the weapon, despite repeated demands. A stun gun was eventually used to disarm her.
Apour was booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of domestic violence, cruelty to animals, brandishing a weapon, and just being an all around mean and ugly person.
