Police arrived at a Lake Worth home to find a glass dining room table flipper over, with shards of glass scattered through the area, according to WPBF. They also found a 12-inch decorative knife laying on the kitchen counter.

According to Seltzer’s mother, Deanna became enraged when she asked to go to dinner at Outback Steakhouse and was told no. She allegedly punched her mother with closed fists on her chest and arms, and when her father intervened, he reportedly received multiple scratches to his face and upper body. Seltzer also allegedly grabbed the knife and lunged at her father, yelling, “I’m going to kill you.”

Seltzer is out of jail on bond, local TV station CW34 reports. A judge ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation, and was ordered to stay away from drugs, alcohol and weapons. According to the report, it is unknown whether mental health, drugs or alcohol played a part in the incident.
