Fort Myers woman Ting Pernug was arrested Monday after deputies said she poured cough syrup on her boyfriend and tried to set the bed on fire.

John Szostek called the sheriff's office after Perng said she was going to set their Christmas tree on fire. When he tried to leave the home, Szostek said she grabbed a knife.

When deputies arrived they said Perg appeared intoxicated and very angry. She said that Szostek choked her. The deputy did not find any choke marks on her, but found scratch marks running across Szostek's chest.

According to the police report, Perng also said, “She did not try to burn the bed, she would rather set him on fire.”

Perng was arrested and taken to Lee County jail for domestic violence battery.
