A Miami plastic surgeon allegedly attacked his girlfriend for several hours over a post she wrote on Facebook last month, officials said.

After dragging the girlfriend through his apartment, Orlando Llorente, 41, allegedly stuffed a rag into her mouth and forced her head into a toilet, the Associated Press reported.

Police say Orlando Llorente, 41, was charged Wednesday with kidnapping, attempted murder, and other offenses for the incident involving Leeanne Sauma, 36. He was being held Thursday without bail in the Miami-Dade County jail.

Llorente grabbed Sauma by the hair on April 21, took her into the bathroom and stuck her head in the toilet, said Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes. She said he also forced her into the bathtub, stuffed a rag in her mouth and poured water over her face.

Police didn't say what she had posted on the social network that prompted the attack, which authorities say lasted for 16 hours. Llorente let Sauma go after she promised him she wouldn't tell anyone what happened.

Llorente's attorney, Marcos Beaton, said his client surrendered voluntarily to police and wants to clear his name.

"He reached out to law enforcement, through his lawyers, when these false allegations surfaced. We are disappointed that our requests for more time in which to present a thorough and thoughtful examination into the source of the allegations and the facts surrounding them was declined," Beaton said, The Miami Herald reported.

Sauma reportedly sustained minor injuries as a result of the attack.
