Fight between couple leaves woman with two fractured ribs and a fractured jaw.
HOLT — A fight that took place at a local bar led to the arrest of a 54-year-old Baker man.
According to bar employees, the man walked up to his girlfriend, who was sitting at the bar, and reached for cellphone. As he did so, he grabbed her leg, applying “excessive pressure,” employees told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
She bit him on the chest to get him to release her, at which point he slapped her in the back of the head.
Employees asked them to leave immediately, the report said.
The victim told deputies that she was walking east on U.S. Highway 90 when her boyfriend followed her and knocked her to the ground. He then kicked her in the ribs, the report said.
Her injuries included two fractured ribs and a fractured jaw.
The couple has lived together for two years, the report said.
