Faron ThompsonOrlando, 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.

    Fail. I guess he must have thought she couldn’t so easily break things off with him if she couldn’t reach the engagement ring to give it back to him. He failed to realise that it would only be a matter of days at the most before he would have the ring back anyway, including a rather fragrant ‘giftwrapping’.

  • whoopsidaisies

    His quote was glorious.

  • alphatroll

    A Dreamin’ Demon story that takes place in a Florida Wal-Mart? My day has been made.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Truth be told, I think that his ex-fiancee has pretty good evidence that she was assaulted.

    Professor, what would happen if I fed her a piece of coal when she’s constipated?

  • Buffettgirl

    Wow I wish I’d know just how freaking fantastically far out the crime stories in Florida are when I was there last spring. It would have been a riot to watch the news or read the paper instead doing all that sight seeing shit! Sure, playing with the manatees was cool and all, but the stuff that comes out of that place daily? Fabulous, just fabulous!

  • CT

    Please, it couldn’t have been that bad of an assault because something tells me this douchebag couldn’t afford anything more than a CZ the size of a piece of rice.

  • come_and_see

    Florida and Walmart. The ultimate combination. :D

    I wonder what my life would be like if I could simply go around beating the ever loving shit out of everyone who pissed me off and then blame THEM for my actions.

    I guess that would mean I’d have to live in a double wide down in Florida. Ok, count me out.

    he is right. but also horribly terribly wrong. rise above my brothers.

  • Buffettgirl

    I didn’t even think of that! Any Walmart down South is probably a damn laugh riot but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the ones in Florida are probably PRIME people watching… I think I need to make another trip to FL to test the theory. :-)

  • JohnQknowitall

    Straight men. Gay men never abuse women and they generally take the woman’s side.

  • Athena

    Oh, really? Have you never heard my story about being sucker punched by a FLAMING gay guy at a bar?

    …luckily for me, he punched like a girl. But, fuck… it wasn’t for a lack of trying… :P

    That’s right. Gay dudes punch me a bums throw oranges. It’s an exciting but remarkably risk-free life I live.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I got a fiver that says she met the deputy at the very same Walmart he got the ring from.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    “Women always claim assault, but never accept responsibility for provoking someone.”

    So does this mean I can beat the shit out of him and claim this quote provoked it?

  • JohnQknowitall

    He must’a been bi. ;)

  • midniteshadows

    Yes!!!!!

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Get a camera. I’m feelin’ extra angry tonight!

  • Patr1ckBateman

    I ain’t disputing the fact that the guy is a scumbag. Assaulting someone like that is completely out of line and makes me sick. Respect her wishes and leave her alone. Common decency. Relationships end.

    And yeah, he could well be a bum without much money too.

    But, the comment about being able to only afford a cubic zirconia is troubling. Remember ladies:

    The amount of money a man spends on you does not have a direct correlation with how much he loves you. Love and money are not tied together.

    Also, diamonds do not equal love. That is a myth largely created by the DeBeers diamond cartel. If you take away the made-up significance that we as humans attach to diamonds, they are just carbon. I appreciate that a guy may scrimp and save and sacrifice for a long time to buy his girl a diamond because he loves her, but he is falling for corporate brainwashing and so is she.

    Now at the risk of being a complete hypocrite I will admit I bought my missus an engagement ring with a diamond on it. But she chose it, it was a modest ring and it was what she wanted. I can’t expect her to have all the same beliefs as me. Of course if she’d wanted a huge diamond worth thousands, then it wouldn’t have happened, no matter what.

    And let’s not forget the fact that a big reason a lot of guys buy diamonds for girls is for the sexual favours they think the girl will deliver. They are paying the girl for sex!!!! Let’s not sugar coat it. That’s what happens in a lot of cases, not all by any means, but a lot.

  • Califboy

    Nothing says “I love you” like shoving it down her throat!!!

  • Buffettgirl

    If I get a ring anytime soon I want Tanzanite – way more valuable down the road… ;-)

  • CT

    First of all – you’ve been around long enough to know when a girl is being a smartass, now don’t you? I don’t condone violence against women or most folks for that matter.

    Guys buys girls diamonds to get favors? My husband and I dated for nine years before I got any diamonds. Why couldn’t you have told me this before? I do have a nice sized diamond as well as two matching diamond wedding bands that my husband took the initiative to design himself through a private jeweler – who charges way less than retail but only works through trusted referrals and accepts only cash – but before that we had already bought a home, paid off two cars and had more money in savings compared to others in our situation. No credit card debt. We live below our means. Comparatively speaking again, I have a small ring based on our friends but since we are both cheapass people who came from zero money, i would rather have my kitchen redone than a 5 carat ring.

    Also for the record, I can afford to buy my own diamonds and pretty much anything I want. I’ve never needed a man to have nice things. My husband would buy me pretty much anything I want and I know it but I rarely ask because what I want is a happy family and maybe a little less fucking nagging. I have the happy family and the nagging, well, he is working on that.

  • CT

    Hey, how can you say that and I’m the gold digging tramp?

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Everyone already knows I’m a gold-digging tramp?

  • CT

    One of the many reasons I love you.

  • Patr1ckBateman

    You raise some good points and I will attempt to address them.
    It’s hard for me to tell when someone is being sarcastic on a computer sometimes. I need to see their face and body language and hear their voice. So that slipped past me. Also, I have few social skills, a result of being socially outcast when I was young.

    Now, I never said that every time a guy buys a girl a diamond it is to get favours. I merely said that this is the case in a lot of instances. Upon re-reading my post, I think I may not have been clear enough on that. I apologise and meant no offence to those who don’t fall into that category.

    I also don’t think I implied that women need men to buy diamonds for them. I would be most horrified if people thought that I believed that. I appreciate the fact that you are a financially independent empowered woman and never meant to say otherwise about any woman.

    In my above post I mainly wanted to underline the fact that if a man spends a lot of money on a woman it doesn’t automatically mean he loves her. And diamonds are just rocks. Just shiny rocks.

    The whole “diamonds are special” idea is just a ruse to get people to part with their money. It is perhaps the most insidious marketing campaign of all time. Now people never question it.

  • Athena

    Diamonds are for suckers. Sapphires are the traditional engagement stone, and their worth won’t plummet if the DeBeers suddenly decide to open the flood gates.

  • Athena

    Tanzanite is way more valuable now. Get you some.

  • Patr1ckBateman

    Yes. How many stones are they hoarding in vaults to keep the value high? I don’t wanna even know. And all that horror that they caused in Africa. All those poor people. DeBeers didn’t give a shit, they just wanted the money.

  • CT

    Thanks for your reply. It was a good one. I often forget that not everyone knows I am pretty much a smart ass most of the time. Based your responses, you are a better person than you give yourself credit. And you are right on the diamond comment and DeBeers. I have read the same information.

  • Patr1ckBateman

    Thankyou. I am glad to have cleared things up somewhat. I dunno about being a better person, I’m just trying and failing and then trying again, as the years go by. Hopefully my son will be a vastly better man than I.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I like my tiny diamond. dammit.

    How romantic. I DO!!!! <3

    I’m not sure why, but this made me laugh sofa king hard that I aspirated a black olive off my pizza and spent 2 1/2 minutes gagging and choking and I was still laughing the whole time.

  • LeaveMeBe

    A good rule of thumb is to always assume someone is being sarcastic, especially if no one has jumped their shit. If a bunch of people are jumping their shit, it’s a good bet they are being a true asshole and they derserve it. :)

  • LeaveMeBe

    I’ll have you know, not all women like diamonds, or gems of any kind for that matter. I love sterling silver jewelry, silver looks best on me. I have a plain gold and silver band from a jeweler that originated in Texas called James Avery and I wouldn’t trade it for any diamond in the world. But I got where you were going with your comment.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I like Alexandrtie and Citrine.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Excuse me, but BULLFUCKINGSHIT. I spent an evening at a bar with my husband and brother-in-law playing pool, dancing and drinking and the whole damn time this gay guy kept trying to hook up with my husband and wanting to kick my ass! IF I had met him outside he would have done his best to fuck me up. I refused because if I’m not going to debase myself and fight a stupid female bitch over my husband I sure wasn’t going to fight a stupid male bitch over him. Pffft.

  • JohnQknowitall

    He was bi.

  • LeaveMeBe

    No he wasn’t.

  • CT

    It’s one of the many, many reasons why I luv you. You appreciate me. Not many do.

    Meh, I appreciate you, you scare me but I appreciate you.

    I think extra angry should be one word, like extraordinary. Extraangry. It looks so serious and mean.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Pronounced “ex-TRANG-ry”? I like it.

  • LeaveMeBe

    That’s good! So we should drop the extra ‘a’ and spell it extrangry.

    I hate diamonds, colorless little nothings! I love fire opal ;-)

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Alexandrite is much cooler, though. They are hideously expensive, but, they change colors under all types of light sources.
    Here’s a round 3.5 ct. natural alexandrite, flanked by (2) oval 1/2 ct. natural tanzanites mounted in palladium. Plus two palladium wedding bands. (The camera flash does them no justice.)

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    You’re right about going to a private jeweler. I designed Deede’s engagement ring through a good private jeweler that enjoyed the challenge of working palladium…

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Tanzanite is a limited resource. When they’re gone, SOON, the value will skyrocket.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Because it was Drag King night at the bar, and she was competing. When he found out “he” was a she, he lost interest.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I asked him. Right before I grabbed him by the throat and shoved him up against the wall. After I had followed him into the men’s restroom. But before he started crying like a little bitch. He said no. :)

  • LeaveMeBe

    You. Are. An. Ass.

  • LeaveMeBe

    We bought my daughter an alexandrite ring for her high school graduation last year. It’s her favorite stone and I have to say it’s absolutely gorgeous.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mississippi.xray Mississippi X-Ray

    stupid bitch should have been happy to get a ring and kept her white trash mouth shut.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    I’ll bet it is! Your daughter has good, but expensive, taste. LOL!

  • LeaveMeBe

    LOL! It’s very small and functional, nothing blingy. She is really a bargain shopper and not super girly so it needed to be one that she could wear out while fishing, riding horses, swimming, hiking and handling the animals at work. I didn’t mean to make it sound like she was high maintenance. She would be so mad at me! :)

  • JohnQknowitall

    Drag King? LOL

  • newstarshipsmell

    I was so proud of that zing, I actually messaged @Zahzen:disqus to demand she come upvote it.

  • 18th40

    Yeah but it was funny.

  • 18th40

    You’ve been watching Roadhouse again haven’t ya ?

  • LeaveMeBe

    Him being funny does not preclude him from being an ass. And you’re just encouraging him by saying such things.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I hate that movie. My husband likes it. Do they do shit like this in it?

  • 18th40

    I’m missing your point.

  • 18th40

    No, Roadhouse is about two cowboys who find forbidden love at a truck stop Denny’s.

  • Athena

    Alexandrite is cool, but some of it is too gaudy and fake-looking for me.

    Sapphire is the second hardest gemstone behind diamonds, so they make the ideal long-term jewelry, something that can be worn constantly and still passed down. If money were no object, I’d own a Padparadscha (sapphire). That is the coolest stone on the planet, in my opinion. Talk about hideously expensive, though.

    Pictures just don’t do it justice.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    ANY jewellery can be designed to look tacky & gaudy.
    Ruby is the second hardest gemstone due to the crystalline lattice. Though both are composed of carborundum, ruby is still slightly harder than sapphire.
    I’d also never use white gold for durability due to the regular maintenance of having to re-plate it with rhodium. (Per the picture link on your comment.)

    Right now, I’m in the process of fashioning a men’s 14 ct. yellow gold ring with a 4.5 ct. alexandrite cats-eye oval cabochon center stone using the lost wax process to spin cast the ring part. The only reason I’m going to be using yellow gold is that I’ve never worked palladium, or any of the trans-platinum elements.

    Hey, everyone needs a hobby, or twenty…

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Didn’t sound like high maintenance, just knows what she likes.

  • Athena

    No, no, I’m not talking about the jewelry, I’m talking about the stone itself. Those that flash too wildly between two very different colors are reminiscent of the kind of “stones” often used in flashy costume jewelry, which is what creates the association for me. There are many versions I adore, but some of these are just ridiculous-looking to me. :P

    As for Ruby vs. Sapphire, I am of the school that considers the Ruby to be nothing more than a red Sapphire. But that’s a fun fact I was not previously aware of.

    As for the picture, it’s nothing I’d want or wear, it was just the best picture of a Padparadscha I could find quickly. :P

    Jewelry-making is a cool hobby. I don’t have the skill, so I have a guy who does.
