Daytona Johnson Gets Five Years in Prison for Attacks on Both of Her Live-in Ex-Boyfriends

Believe it or not, living with two ex-boyfriends at the same time didn't work out well for Phoenix woman Daytona Johnson.

After punching one ex-boyfriend/baby-daddy, then throwing a can of Febreeze at her other ex-boyfriend/baby-daddy -- and later slicing his throat with a meat cleaver -- Johnson's getting a trip to prison.

Johnson was sentenced today to five years in prison, after pleading guilty to one count of aggravated assault, while the five other charges were dropped as part of a plea agreement.

According to court documents previously obtained by New Times, Johnson -- who lived in her Phoenix home with the two ex-boyfriends and children fathered by each of the men -- got into an argument with one of the men at the house back in September.

While Johnson was arguing with one of her exes, Chad Grubbs, Johnson's other live-in ex-boyfriend, Dominick Glarruisso, entered the room and asked Johnson to give him his cell phone, which she refused to do.

Glarruisso took it anyway, which didn't sit well with Johnson.

Johnson proceeded to punch Glarruisso in the face, and when Grubbs tried to intervene, she threw a Febreeze can at his head, striking him above the eye.

Johnson then left the room, which probably would have been the right move, except for the fact that she came back about 10 minutes later -- with the meat cleaver.

She started up an argument with Grubbs again, while Glarruisso tried to get him to just walk away.

Grubbs took the advice and walked away, but Johnson still took the meat cleaver to his throat, causing a 6-inch cut to the upper part of his neck.

Johnson left after that, as Glaruisso rounded up the three youngsters there and took Grubbs to the hospital, where he was treated and released.

Police caught up with Johnson and arrested her on a handful of charges, although she ended up with a single conviction on a felony charge of aggravated assault.
