When deputies pulled up to Sheelah Thompson’s apartment in Spartanburg, S.C., to investigate a physical altercation with her boyfriend, they learned plenty about what allegedly went down earlier Monday evening.
Thompson, 22, told police that Tyler Ford, 23, strangled her and threatened to kill her, put her phone in the oven so she couldn’t call 911, and “popped” their infant daughter twice on the legs because she was crying, WHNS-TV in Greenville, S.C., reported.
If that wasn’t enough, Thompson also claimed that Ford hit her in the face – with his rolled-up anger management workbook, the Associated Press added.
Police said that while the couple was watching a movie, Ford asked Thompson why she tries to get him angry knowing he’s in anger management, but she only shrugged in response, so he hit her on the foot and then the cheek with his book.
The pair hit each other, and Thompson at one point stabbed him with a box cutter, police said. Deputies said Ford had a deep cut on his forearm while Thompson had a bump on her forehead from the fight.
Ford and Thompson were both arrested and booked on criminal domestic violence charges.
