Hold the mustard.
A Florida man was arrested and charged with domestic battery after he reportedly poured ketchup over his sleeping girlfriend, who he believed was having an affair.
Peter Wagman, 37 had been dating his 41-year-old girlfriend, who has not been named, for 11 years. According to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, they often argued over infidelity and the most recent incident, which took place in the early hours of Sunday, was just one of their many spats.
Investigators were called to the couple's Pinellas Park residence where they found Wagman's girlfriend covered in ketchup. According to the police report, she had fallen asleep in the bedroom but later woke up to find Wagman pouring ketchup over her while yelling "that's what you get b----."
Wagman denied the accusations, but police noticed ketchup smears on his pants. He was promptly arrested and charged with one count of domestic battery, which he has pleaded not guilty. He was released from county jail on Monday and has been ordered to have no contact with his girlfriend.
The couple's tumultuous relationship has been marked by a history of violence. Both Wagman and his girlfriend previously have been arrested for battery, but the charges were later dropped. Earlier this year, an argument resulted in the woman's arrests after she allegedly struck Wagman, The Smoking Gun noted.
