A 78-year-old Trump supporter in Florida was reportedly arrested for throwing his wife to the floor because she supports Hillary Clinton.

Lawrence Littman, 78, and his wife, Elvia Littman, 73, reportedly got into a heated argument over the 2016 presidential race in their Bradenton home July 27, reports the Daily Mail.

Elvia told sheriff's deputies that her husband "called her many derogatory names then grabbed her wrist and threw her on a chair in the bedroom." When she tried to escape by going to another room on the other side of the house, her husband reportedly "followed her, grabbed her by the arm again and slung her to the ground."

According to The Smoking Gun, Lawrence told police during questioning that he and Elvia had been arguing over politics when she tried to "slap him in the face," so he "shoved her back and she slipped and fell to the ground."

According to the criminal complaint, Elvia hurt her backside when she was thrown to the ground.

Lawrence Littman has been arrested for battery on a person over 65, which is a felony. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and is free on $500 bond. Pittman has been ordered to avoid contact with his wife as a condition of his pretrial release.
