Laura Chavez did not pass go. She did not collect $200.

Instead, Santa Fe County Sheriff’s deputies took the 60-year-old directly to jail after they say she repeatedly stabbed her boyfriend Wednesday after arguing during a game of Monopoly.

Police responded to a stabbing call at 1:21 a.m. Wednesday in the Casa Villita Apartments…Deputy Kurt Whyte arrived at the apartment where he says he found the 48-year-old male stabbing victim, “bleeding heavily from his head and right wrist area.”

Chavez, who police say admitted stabbing the man with a kitchen knife, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery on a household member with a deadly weapon, battery upon a peace officer, assault upon a peace officer and resisting or evading a police officer…Her boyfriend, meanwhile, remained hospitalized late Wednesday but was in stable condition, according to Lt. Adan Mendoza.

Police say both Chavez and her boyfriend appeared to be intoxicated.

According to the statement of probable cause filed for Chavez’s arrest drafted by Detective Andrew Quintana, Chavez and her boyfriend were playing a late Tuesday night game of Monopoly with her 10-year-old grandson. The young boy told police the couple began fighting because his grandma thought her boyfriend was cheating at the classic Parker Brothers game…

Investigators say they were not aware of past domestic violence calls regarding the couple, but jail records show Chavez has been booked into the Santa Fe County jail nine times since June 2006, many of which were related to violations of probation and the conditions of her release from a 2009 felony drug possession case in which she eventually received a conditional discharge.

Who knew a board game could be so exciting?

    Some people take game playing a little too seriously… Although, if he was cheating and she was having a menopausal moment, it would explain allot.

  2. The Monster's Lawyer says:

    She was suffering from monopolaus.

  3. Miguel says:

    Can you even play Monopoly intoxicated? 😀

    Monopoly is a terrible board game that almost invariably invites the “fuck this shit!” reaction. Why?

    All but two players are out fairly quickly.
    One of the two is pretty much set in a loss by that point.
    It will still drag on for hours after.

    Sooo, not that surprising it could cause violence to occur as well.

    I’m ok with that.

  6. Skeptic says:

    Oh, that’s just the new Monopoly game with capitalist pigs and wall street protesters. She tried her best, but luck wasn’t on her side, and she finally lost her one tiny house on St. Charles place. He owned everything else. The game comes with a nine inch serrated knife hidden in a false bottom under Virginia Avenue.

    Damn it, she wanted that fucking pewter racing car to hop around the fucking board and she was going to get that fucking pewter racing car.

    Either that or she was going to carve a Bugatti logo out of the fucking little spic pricks liver…

    And she did!

    Ave Laura, morituri te salutant.”
