Jennifer Booth, 43, from Florida is accused of hitting the 56-year-old who cooked her dinner after she launched the plate of chicken at his face in a “violent” outburst
A hunter who was once derided around the world for shooting a giraffe before posing with the corpse is in trouble again for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend with a chicken dinner.
The Smoking Gun reports that Jennifer Booth from Florida is now facing a domestic battery charge.
According to a report from the Manatee County Sheriff’s office, the 43-year-old allegedly hurled the plate of chicken at her boyfriend. The police report says it hit Bill Booth in the face and chest.
Investigators claim Booth struck the 56-year-old man with the chicken while they were eating last Wednesday night on the porch of their Bradenton home.

Booth’s companion, who cooked dinner told investigators that she “became violent” during a verbal argument and “picked up the paper plate of chicken and threw it in my face.”
Furious, the man dialled 911 and told officers about the alleged dinner assault.
Booth was arrested and booked into the Manatee County jail on a misdemeanour charge and later released Friday on a $500 bond. Jennifer and Bill Booth pose with bones
Booth, who works at a Lakewood hospital, has three prior arrests, “most recently 2015 Domestic Violence,” according to a court filing that does not include case dispositions, reports the investigative website.
While Booth and the man share a surname, a pre-trial services report lists her marital status as “single”. An arrest report identifies the victim as her boyfriend, who was not injured in the alleged attack.
Booth is an avid hunter whose Facebook page is stocked with pictures of her posing with animals she has shot dead, images that have prompted online derision.
One photo shows Booth holding the head of a giraffe killed during a 2017 hunt in South Africa, which she described in a Facebook caption as “One of the best days of my life.” Jennifer Booth is accused of chucking her plate of chicken at her boyfriend in Florida
