Couple arguing stock
ADOBE STOCK IMAGE

A 25-year-old DeLand woman was going through her live-in boyfriend’s phone the night of Sept. 1, and learned that he had been watching adult videos on the internet.

They began to quarrel, and Girlfriend asked Boyfriend (with whom she shares a child) to leave. She started packing some of his possessions, which irritated Boyfriend, who preferred to do his own packing if he had to go.

He wanted to pick up some of his belongings in the bedroom, but Girlfriend had locked that door. Therefore Boyfriend kicked in the bedroom door.

Girlfriend got upset and “punched [Boyfriend] in the face two to three times,” and threw some of his possessions outside, damaging a television in the process. (Girlfriend is not someone to get into a fight with: She’s 6 feet tall and weighs 220 pounds.)

DeLand police were alerted that some kind of domestic disturbance was happening, and an officer showed up.

Boyfriend said he didn’t want to press charges, but when the officer asked Girlfriend what had happened, she acknowledged that she’d punched Boyfriend. She said “she hit him out of anger because he broke the bedroom door.”

The officer noted that “[Girlfriend] was more upset due to the fact that she is the tenant on the lease and he isn’t so she is responsible for fixing the door.”

Neither party had any visible marks from their confrontation, but the officer concluded from all the facts that Girlfriend was the primary aggressor. She was taken to jail, charged with domestic battery touch/strike. And let’s hope nobody who was locked up with her got her angry!
