PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Florida prosecutors have dropped a domestic violence charge against a woman accused of squirting her boyfriend with a water pistol.

Court records state prosecutors have decided not to pursue the case against Giovanna Borge, 19, who was arrested in September following an incident in a Port St. Lucie apartment, the Smoking Gun website reported Monday.

The Port St. Lucie police report said Borge told officers her boyfriend "said something to her that she did not like," so she "took a water pistol and squirted him with water."

Borge told police her boyfriend struck her with a pillow and dumped a container of water on her head during the ensuing struggle.

However, police determined Borge was the "primary aggressor" in the incident and she was arrested on a domestic violence charge for "squirting water" on the victim to "antagonize and agitate him against his wishes."

Borge had also been ordered not to come within 50 feet of her boyfriend.
