In Santa Fe, Mexico, no one takes Monopoly quite as seriously as Laura Chavez, 60. Chavez was arrested last week for allegedly stabbed her boyfriend repeatedly after accusing him of cheating at Monopoly.
Chavez’s 48-year-old boyfriend was playing not only with her but their couple’s 10-year-old grandson. Fortunately, the grandson had gone to bed when Chavez grabbed a bottle and hit her boyfriend over the head with it. She then picked up a kitchen knife and began repeatedly stabbing the man.
Chavez presented a somewhat problematic defense case after being found hiding under the porch covered in her boyfriend’s blood and proceeded to say “yes, I fucked him up,” according to the police. They say that she then resisted arrest. Worse yet, she has a record for felony drug possession. She is now charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, battery on a police officer, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.
The option below remains her best bet for a criminal defense.
