A 57-year-old Franklin, Indiana, man was arrested Sunday after an argument with his fiancee over NASCAR allegedly got out of hand.
David Wilson was at a party where several people had gathered to watch the Indianapolis 500, according to WRTV.
Wilson’s fiancee, who was not named in media reports, said that he became angry when he heard her and someone else talking about how IndyCar was better than NASCAR.
She also told police that they had been drinking all day.
According to Wilson’s side of the story, he was making dinner in the kitchen when he heard his fiancee “talking trash about NASCAR.” He said he yelled at them but no violence occurred.
Wilson added that he was angry because no one was helping him with the household chores, WRTV reported.
The police report states that Wilson “started rambling on about NASCAR being better than IndyCar,” according to the woman. He then reportedly approached her and choked her.
When Wilson’s fiancee tried to call 911, Wilson took the phone from her and said, “Who are you calling?” He then told the dispatcher, “Everything is fine here,” before hanging up.
When police arrived, they checked Wilson’s fiancee for signs of strangulation, but found none, Fox 59 reported.
Johnson County deputies arrested Wilson, and charged him with domestic battery and strangulation.
