Highley Intoxicated

St. Lucie County, Fla., sheriff’s deputies cruising through a convenience store parking lot in Jensen Beach noticed a man running up to them. The 25-year-old man begged for their help, saying a woman had demanded sex from him, and got angry when he refused her. Sure enough, chasing behind him was a woman holding a hunting knife. The officers ordered that she drop it, and she did. Elizabeth Highley, 56, was “crying and appeared to be intoxicated,” deputies say. They charged her with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The victim said he was friends with Highley, but insisted they are “not a couple.” (RC/Port St. Lucie News, WPBF Palm Beach) ...Or, friends without benefits.
