Lover's Spat Lands Two in Hospital

A Panama City Beach couple could be facing serious charges after a domestic dispute at their Thomas Drive area townhouse.

When Bay County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home they say they found 37-year-old Cathy Bennett overdosed on drugs.

Bennett reportedly told lawmen she’s bitten off her boyfriend’s finger and hit him over the head with a coat rack.

Deputies found 39-year-old Johnny Frank Brown at a nearby convenience store. They say he was carrying cocaine and $9,000 in cash. They also searched the couple’s townhouse and found more drugs.

Both Bennett and Brown are hospitalized, receiving treatment, and will be charged and jailed when they are released.
