Florida Woman ‘Tries To Rip Face Off’ Elderly Lady For Changing The Thermostat Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office

A Florida woman is behind bars after she reportedly attacked an elderly lady for adjusting the thermostat. Brieland Springer is said to have “tried to rip [the] face off” the victim on November 2 in Palm Beach County. She was quickly arrested and charged in what police are describing as a domestic incident.

The suspect absolutely lost it, the elderly woman said.

According to the victim, she adjusted the thermostat in the home at roughly 1 a.m. However, Springer saw her and came up behind her, grabbed her by the face, and “Tried to rip my face off,” she told the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim added that she managed to get away from Springer before she was seriously hurt, Fox 35 Orlando reports.

Springer told police that the victim was lying.

When officers arrived at the scene at about 4:45 p.m., they didn’t notice any marks or bruises on the victim’s face, according to the arrest affidavit.

Springer denied assaulting the older woman, whose exact age hasn’t been released, and insisted the victim was lying. Nevertheless, authorities felt they had enough evidence to arrest her.

Charges have been filed, but Brieland Springer is a free woman.

After being arrested and booked into the county jail, Brieland Springer was charged and ultimately released.

She’s facing charges of battery on a person older than 65. It’s unclear what the relationship between the two women actually is, but officers have dubbed the incident a domestic one, so it’s clear they’re known to one another and possibly even related.

Springer is due back in court next month, Local 10 reports.
