The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Saturday a woman who was held captive by her boyfriend for two days managed to slip a note to her vet reading, "Call the cops, my boyfriend is threatening me".
The victim, Caroline Reichle, later told investigators she persuaded her boyfriend, Jeremy Floyd, to bring their dog to the clinic as a way to escape his physical abuse. He was found to be carrying a loaded gun. The staff at the animal hospital quickly alerted Deland Police Department after receiving the note. She told police she tried to get the gun away from him and during the struggle the weapon went off twice.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal quotes the Volusia County Sheriff's Office as saying the 39-year-old Floyd was arrested at DeLand Animal Hospital.
