A Florida woman has been arrested by a North Carolina sheriff’s office after stabbing the man she provides care for with a felt-tipped marker and pushing him out of a moving car on I-95.
The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release on Monday that Arlene Mary Bonitz, 57, of Palm Harbor, Florida, was driving south on Sunday on Interstate 95 near the 64-mile marker in Godwin, North Carolina. In the car with her was a man for whom she provides care and support due to his cognitive issues, the sheriff’s office said.
According to CCSO, Bonitz stabbed the man several times with a felt-tipped marker before pushing him out of her car while driving at 60 mph. She continued driving on I-95 before she crashed, the sheriff’s office said.
Bonitz and the victim were taken to a local hospital for treatment, CCSO says.
The victim suffered a broken pelvis and had road rash on his face, hands, and legs, investigators said.
Bonitz was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. She was given a $75,000 secured bond and was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
