In the midst of a troubled relationship a 46-year-old Sonoma man produced a Bowie knife and threatened to cut the conjugal bed in half if his girlfriend evicted him from it.
After he left the First Street West residence, the girlfriend, 53, hid the knife fearing its possible future use, and later explained to police that her partner had become too controlling.
The boyfriend eventually returned, began drinking vodka and informed the femme that if she left him he would kill her and anyone she was with.
She called police, who arrived quickly to question the man about the threat.
“I got drunk and had some verbal diarrhea,” he told officers. “I don’t know why, but I really love that woman.”
Officers charged the man with threatening with intent to terrorize, and booked him into the county jail.
