A 31-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after he showed his displeasure over his girlfriend’s new tattoo by trying to choke her with a T-shirt, police said.
The couple got into an argument shortly after 7 p.m. at their residence in Wichita on Wednesday, Lt. Doug Nolte said.
The man was not happy that his 24-year-old girlfriend had her son’s name tattooed on the back of her shoulder, Nolte said. The argument escalated until the man wrapped a T-shirt around her neck and attempted to “choke her out,” Nolte said.
He also hit her several times. The victim has a medical history of seizures and had more than one during the assault, Nolte said.
She was eventually able to call 911 and police arrested the man upon their arrival.
