New Haven, CT - Michael Wallace, 40, was arrested Saturday after continuously pounding his wife with a six-pack of beer and a coffee pot.
Police officers were dispatched to the couple’s home after receiving a complaint of domestic violence. Wallace’s common law wife, Chastiny Atkinson, had several visible bruises from the attack.
Atkinson confirmed that Wallace was intoxicated when he began arguing with her over “two dudes that don’t even exist.” He was unsatisfied with the damage caused by the coffee pot he started beating her with so he proceeded to pick up a six-pack of beer and began beating her with that as well.
He then ripped hair from her head and began choking her. Before fleeing the scene, Wallace warned her that if she called the police, he would seek retribution. Police were called back to the scene two hours later after a report that Wallace was trying to enter the home. Wallace was located in his car several blocks away.
His side of the story is a little different than Atkinson’s. He claims that she assaulted him first and it was self defense, but the officers found no injuries to support his claims. Wallace has been charged with second-degree assault, second-degree strangulation, reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, and second-degree breach of peace. He has been ordered to have no contact with his wife.
Hopefully this arrest will teach Wallace that you cannot go around beating women with coffee pots and beer. What a waste of beer. Any bets on what kind it was? I’m putting my money on a malt liquor like Old English or Natural Ice. Possibly a pale lager like Milwaukee’s Best.Tags: Beating, beer, Connecticut, Crime, domestic abuse, Michael Wallace
