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?
