A woman from Lake Worth is accused of attacking her parents with a knife for not taking her to Outback Steakhouse.

Deanna Seltzer, 28, is facing two counts of aggravated assault, battery, and battery on a person over 65 years old.

A report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Seltzer became enraged after she asked her parents to go to Outback on Wednesday afternoon. Her mom said "No." That's when Seltzer flipped over the glass dining room table and other furniture throughout the home. Deputies said she also hit her mom, grabbed a 12-inch decorative knife and chased her dad around the home, threatening to kill him. Her father eventually wrestled the knife away from her.

Seltzer is free on bond. A judge ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation within days of her release from jail.
