Palm Beach County Sheriff's Corrections
Rachael Bohbot was arrested for allegedly biting her boyfriend's son.
A Florida woman was arrested over the weekend for allegedly biting her boyfriend's 6-year-old son in a contest to see who could bite the hardest, authorities said.
Rachael Bohbot, of Boynton Beach, remained in Palm Beach County Jail on $3,000 bond on Tuesday. She faces a charge of child abuse without great harm after her boyfriend's son told his mother that Bohbot bit him several times over the course a weekend he spent with his father, a Boynton Beach police arrest report said.
The boy was limping and told authorities Bohbot had bitten him on the leg while playing the "bite game," the report said. He said the game was a contest to see who could bite the hardest and that he lost the game when his thigh became bruised, the report said.
He said that his reward for winning would be additions to his Halloween costume, the report said.
When authorities met with Bohbot, she first denied biting the boy but later admitted to biting him on the shoulder harder than normal, the report said. She also said the boy cried uncontrollably and in an attempt to stop his cries, she offered him a toy sword for Halloween, the report said.
She told authorities that she bit him on the shoulder, not the leg, and did not have an explanation as to how he got the bruise on the leg, the report said.
It wasn't immediately known whether Bohbot had an attorney.
