The incident happened back in May at the DeLand Animal Hospital
Caroline Reichle (blurred) told police she had been beaten for two days straight be her boyfriend Jeremy Floyd when she finally convinced him to let her leave the house and take their dog to the vet
After he threatened to kill her family in the car ride to the vet, Reichle scribbled out this note and handed it to workers at the animal hospital
She then walks away as the secretary reads the note and then hands it to a co-worker to look over as well.
The video then picks up at the moment cops entered the exam room and took Floyd, 39, into custody.
Since the note indicated he had a gun on him, they quickly took it away, and then arrested him with his hands behind his back.
The video ends with Floyd being led out of the room.
Staff called the police who showed up at the hospital and took Floyd into custody

Reichle was allegedly beaten for days before the dramatic arrest.
Floyd has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, and simple battery.
He allegedly wouldn't let Reichle leave their home for two days straight.
He beat her all of Wednesday and pointed a gun at her, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

At one point during the fight they both struggled for the gun and two shots were fired.
Both of the bullets hit a wall and no one was injured by the gunfire.
The woman spent all of Thursday in bed with a head injury from the beating, according to police.
On Friday she managed to convince Floyd to allow her to take their dog to the vet.
Floyd insisted on escorting the woman to the hospital and brought a loaded handgun, police said.
During their drive to the hospital Floyd pointed the gun at her once again and threatened to kill her and her family, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.
After her boyfriend was arrested, Reichle was treated at the hospital for a black eye, head injury, and bruised arm.
