A Florida woman was arrested for shooting her boyfriend because he was snoring too loudly, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Cocoa, Fla.

Orlando station WKMG reports that Lorie Morin, 47, is charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery.

Brevard County Deputies said that on Wednesday, they responded to a home call after being told a man was shot. When they arrived, they said both the victim and Morin claimed it was an accidental shooting.

As the deputies continued their investigation, they learned the shooting had been sparked by a domestic violence issue between Morin and her boyfriend. Morin reportedly shot the victim because he was snoring too loudly.

Deputies reported that both parties had been drinking and got into an argument prior to the shooting.

Orlando television station WOFL reports her boyfriend is in stable condition at an Orlando-area hospital.

As of Friday afternoon, Morin was being held at the Brevard County Jail without bond.
