A Florida man was arrested and charged after he senselessly beat his girlfriend after dreaming that she cheated on him.
Reports say that 27-year-old Carlos Gascon woke up from a dream that his girlfriend had cheated on him, and he continuously beat her for almost the entire day. The girlfriend claims that Gascon beat her, cut her, poured hot coffee on her and threatened to kill her. She also says that Gascon slammed her onto a glass table and poured hot coffee on her.
“She said he was angry at her because he had a dream she was cheating on him,” said Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin.
In addition to severely abusing his girlfriend, Gascon also reportedly slammed his dog to the ground and choked it with his foot.
Late in the evening following an entire day of abuse, Gascon passed out and the girlfriend was able to call for help. Gascon was promptly arrested.
Now, the 27-year-old is being held at the Monroe County Jail on $265,000 bail. He’s officially been charged with aggravated battery, kidnapping, false imprisonment, arson and animal cruelty.
