A Florida woman was beat and held captive by her boyfriend who threatened to kill her, according to the charging affidavit.
The woman convinced her boyfriend to take their dog to the vet, where she reportedly slipped a note telling a staff member to “call the cops.”
The woman was taken to the hospital and treated for multiple injuries while her boyfriend was arrested without bail.

Some smart thinking and a trip to the veterinarian helped a woman escape her boyfriend, who she says beat her and threatened to kill her.
