Orlando, FL — A man in Florida has been arrested after police say he assaulted his fiancee and tried forcing her engagement ring down her throat.
On Sunday, police responded to a Florida Walmart after a woman there called to report she had been physically assaulted by her boyfriend of four years.
The woman told police that her boyfriend, 29-year-old Faron Thompson, got into an argument after she informed him she wanted to move out. In response, Thompson allegedly grabbed his girlfriend’s engagement ring and tried shoving it down her throat.
She also said that he shoved her against a wall as she held their 1-year-old baby and covered her face with his hands to keep her from breathing. When he threatened to burn down the house, she called him a psycho and he shoved her and their baby out the front door. That’s when she called police and arranged to meet a deputy at a nearby Walmart.
Police located Thompson and charged him with battery via strangulation and child neglect. The neglect charge stems from Thompson shoving his girlfriend and their child out the door with his son only wearing a diaper.
Thompson defended his actions, telling police: “Women always claim assault, but never accept responsibility for provoking someone.” Amen, brother, and I’ve got the restraining orders to prove it.
