“(He) became upset with her that she would not tell him the password to the wifi and grabbed the bottle from her,” the police report says. “He then dumped the bottle of water on her which she advised was insulting/provoking. He told her to stop playing games and threatened to kill her if she didn’t give him the wifi password.”

According to the affidavit, the mother told officers the man had “battered/abused her in the past,” but she had not reported the incidents.

“She advised she wants him out of her apartment as she lives in fear when he is around,” the report says.

Police confronted the man as he was trying to leave the apartment, but he continued walking, telling the officers “there is nothing to talk about as he did not do anything.”

He was taken into custody and charged with domestic battery and later released on a $1,000 recognizance bond. His bail conditions bar contact with the mother and her home.
