Deana Seltzer

Deana Seltzer, 28, was arrested after police say she attacked her parents because they refused to take her to Outback Steakhouse.

LAKE WORTH, Florida (Meredith) -- A Florida woman has been arrested for attacking her parents because they refused to take her to an Outback Steakhouse for dinner Wednesday, police said.

According to WPBF, 28-year-old Deana Seltzer is charged with one count of simple battery domestic, one count of battery of a person 65 or older and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police responded to the home Wednesday night for reports of an armed domestic disturbance.

Police told WPBF that inside the house, officers found a 12-inch decorative knife on the kitchen counter and a glass dining room table turned over with broken glass shattered throughout the area.

Seltzer's mother told police that her daughter asked to go to Outback Steakhouse and she told her no. Seltzer then allegedly became angry and began punching her mother. Seltzer's father intervened and Seltzer allegedly also attacked him, leaving him with multiple scratches on his face and upper body.

Seltzer then allegedly flipped over the glass table and tore up other furniture. Police said Seltzer then grabbed the large knife and ran after her dad, yelling "I'm going to kill you."

The father was able to wrestle the knife away from Seltzer.

According to CW34, Seltzer is out of jail on bond. A judge ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation upon her release from jail. She was also ordered to stay away from drugs, alcohol and weapons. It is unknown if mental health, drugs or alcohol played a part in Seltzer's attack on her parents.

The hardest part of this story to believe is it was over Outback. Not the best food and definitely use a lower grade of meat than some nicer restaurants.


"Outback - No Rules, Just Right..."


Another millennial adult child still living at home way past when they should be. Hopefully they kick her out.


Jesus, you're almost 30. Pay for your own sh*tty outdated chain restaurant.


Millennial, what do you expect?
