Woman punches boyfriend singing along to song she disliked; gets arrested
A woman in Tennessee, USA, was arrested for punching and threatening her boyfriend because she did not like the song he was singing.
Police arrived at the house where the couple was staying after being notified of a domestic disturbance occurring nearby, as per NBC-affiliate WSMV on July 15.
Officers separated Cortney King and the victim upon reaching the scene. The victim was inside his bedroom singing along to music that his partner was not fond of when he was assaulted.
She reportedly punched him in the face and pulled out a box cutter on him, but did not approach him with the weapon. The boyfriend sustained injuries to the upper portion of his face from the punches.
The man did not press any charges against his partner. Police stated they had probable cause to sue on the victim’s behalf.
King was jailed and charged on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and for forfeiture. Her bond was set at $11,000 (around P562,000).
