A Florida woman was arrested in a domestic disturbance incident, wherein her live-in boyfriend complained that she "grabbed him by his b---s and squeezed them until they were bleeding.”
Officers of the Indian Harbour Beach Police Department were faced with the scene of vicious violence after responding to a domestic disturbance call last week. The unidentified man complained to authorities that his live-in girlfriend, later identified as Katie Lee Pitchford, attacked him during a violent argument early morning of Tuesday, Miami Herald reports.
According to a police report, Pitchford became "enraged" during the altercation and struck her boyfriend with a brush. The suspecta llegedly continued to “strike him with her fists and scratched the left side of his face," the victim told officers.
The arrest affidavit states that the man had blood running down the left side of his face, which was visibly bruised. The boyfriend also told police that Pitchford "grabbed him by his b---s and squeezed them until they were bleeding.”
The woman then proceeded to choke him so he could not breathe, but the victim somehow wrestled her by the arms and was able to get away and summon the authorities. On the other hand, Pitchford admitted they were arguing. However, she denied being physically abusive during the fight.
The 21-year-old was placed under arrest for battery. While traveling to the police station in a patrol car, she asked cops if she could talk to her boyfriend to apologize for her actions.
Pitchford was already on felony probation for resisting an officer with violence back in November 2017. She was booked without incident and handed to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office without bond. Pitchford is scheduled to appear in court on June 25.
Pitchford's Facebook page lists her job as a spa worker. In the same account, she has posted multiple memes about relationship issues or shared sage advice on how to deal with romantic problems.
