Woman slips note to veterinary staff pleading for rescue from boyfriend

A Florida woman has escaped her partner, who she claims was threatening her at gunpoint, by slipping a note to a vet. She eventually convinced him that her dog needed to go to the DeLand Animal Hospital, according to a police report.

The note read, "Call the cops, my boyfriend is threatening me". The next day while thinking of an escape plan, she convinced Floyd, a convicted felon, to allow her to bring her dog to the DeLand Animal Hospital, police said.

The worker quietly alerted the authorities, who showed up, seized the gun, and cuffed Floyd, officials said.

Jeremy Floyd, 39, has been arrested and charged over the alleged incident.

WESH reported that 39-year-old Jeremy Floyd was arrested after authorities said he threatened and beat his live-in girlfriend over the course of two days.
