He Put A Ring On It, Alright: Man Allegedly Shoves Engagement Ring Down Fiancee’s Throat

Talk about crazy. I guess this is one of the reasons people argue that you shouldn’t live together premaritally; because when you want out, it’s just too hard to leave.

This was the case for a woman in Orlando who decided the  four year relationship with  her ex-fiance, Faron Thompson, 29, wasn”t going to work out. She was in the process of packing her stuff to move out of the apartment they shared together, when she remembered that she’d left her engagement ring on the kitchen counter. When she went to grab it that’s when Faron allegedly tried to shove it down her throat. He then threatened to burn the house down and while she was holding a one-year old child, pushed her against the wall, covering her mouth and nose with his hand.

The woman broke away and called the authorities.

As Thompson was being arrested, instead of utilizing his right to remain silent, he said,  “Women always claim assault, but never accept responsibility for provoking someone.”

If there was any doubt about whether or not he assaulted his ex-fiancee, that comment right there kind of removes all doubt. He should have kept his mouth shut.

What do you think about this story? Should the girlfriend have gone back for the engagement ring?

    I know this fellow and Im sad to see this is what his relationship came too. While I do not condone a man hitting, beating etc a woman at all – I must interject that this chick likes to start something out of nothing and then play the victim. I can only take the report at half value since this chick likes to over-embelish the reality of things – and she knows whats she keeps going back to every time she packs her bags and leaves.

  • Maybe that’s what Kris Humphries needs to do to Kim Kartrashian!!! Lmmfao!

  • G’Dyss

    etiquette dictates you give it back. the ring is a token of your agreement to marry, if you break that agreement your token is…an empty finger smh females, i tell you (and yes i am one lol)

  • Candacey Doris

    She should have left the ring. Why do you want to take a memory of a failed relationship?

  • Meyaka

    It was his ring to keep and he could have took it to court,why try to kill her? And then claim provocation? People need to get their existence together.

  • FeFe

    No, leave the ring. She was being greedy.

  • An engagment ring is like a contract that a marriage will happen. If wedding is broken off, give back the ring. The promise is broken. Contract over.

    Sooooo….are they still engaged? Inquiring minds kinda want to know LOL

  • kathicks01

    Unless its one of those Kobe Bryant engagement/make-up rings please leave it…

  • i would have left it where it was.

  • stupid is as stupid does

    she should have counted her losses, and bailed the hell out, you not with him anymore so forget about the ring, it represents a chapter in your life you are ending

  • Ive often wondered why women decide to keep a engagement ring from a man she is not going to be with. Then again….if its pawnable
