New York, August 1: A jealous Tennessee man’s lack of knowledge about who Mitt Romney is cost him big after he allegedly confronted his girlfriend and smacked her over the picture of a man on her Facebook page.
The police said that Lowell Turpin was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault last week following a violent confrontation with his live-in girlfriend over what he thought was the pic of a romantic rival on her Facebook page.
The apparently news-blind boyfriend from Clinton, Tenn., “angrily demanded to know ho the male was” – totally unaware that the man with the greying hair was the Republican presidential nominee, an incident report from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department noted.
Still suspicious after his girlfriend denied an affair, Turpin accused the woman of “attempting to communicate with friends through her Facebook account.”
The 40-year-old ripped the laptop out of her hands, smashed it against a wall and smacked her in the face with a closed fist, police said.
The victim suffered an injured wrist and busted lower lip, police said.
“The report says nothing about the suspect being a Democrat,” the New York Daily News quoted Chief Deputy Mark Lucas as saying.
“I think this was just because he was male,” he said.
Turpin, who is 5′ 8″ and 320 pounds, was booked into Anderson County Jail in lieu of 1,000-dollar bond, jail records show. (ANI)
