DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police have arrested a Florida man they say pushed his girlfriend and cut her with glass after she declined to kiss him goodnight.
Records show 59-year-old Rudolph Battaglia was in the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday following his Aug. 19 arrest on charges of battery and aggravated battery.
The Palm Beach Post (http://pbpo.st/2bfiCus ) reports the couple argued after he asked his 54-year-old girlfriend for a goodnight kiss, and she said she’d already kissed him.
The arrest report says Battaglia shoved her onto the bed, broke a crystal decoration and held up a piece of glass while threatening her. Deputies say the woman was cut on her left thumb when he slammed the glass on a table.
Jail records don’t list a lawyer for Battaglia.
