Police were called after a man walked into a hospital with a knife sticking out of his back.

During questioning, the Florida man told St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Officers that he got into an argument with 23-year-old Johnni Marie Murphy, over Facebook posts.

He said that the two had an argument over Facebook posts when he accused Murphy of taking his medication.

She denied his claims. The man then went to her home and found the medication in her bedroom. He took the pills, and as he was leaving, Murphy stabbed him in the lower back, the sheriff’s office said.

He then left the home and drove himself to the hospital with the knife still in his back. He was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

When questioned, Murphy confirmed details of the argument, police said.

Murphy of Fort Pierce, was charged with aggravated battery. She was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail, and her bail was set at $5,000.
