If What’s Love Got to Do With It? taught us anything, it’s that a woman can take so much foolery before she snaps back–and in a big way. Such is also true for the stepdaughter of former New York governor David Paterson. Ashley Dennis, 23, was arrested this weekend for clocking her boyfriend, Brian McGuinness, 30, over the head with a bottle. According to reports, when a heated argument turned physical in McGuinness’ West Village apartment around 4:45 a.m. on Saturday morning, the 30-year-old man (who should know better), tried to choke out Dennis. She allegedly picked up a nearby bottle and proceeded to break it over his head. Afterwards, she took her anger to the next level and repeatedly slammed his leg in a door until he passed out. A witness to the bloody aftermath had this to say to the New York Daily News:
“I heard a guy saying, ‘Help me, help me’. “Then he started saying, ‘Fire, fire,’ to get someone’s attention. I knew it was serious. He wasn’t moving. He had two shoes on top of him like she kicked him out of the apartment and threw the shoes.”
The landlord of the apartment, Pearl DiGeronimo, added her two cents:
“There was blood on the floor, on the door handle, all over the hallway. I thought it was a murder. Hell hath no fury like a woman’s scorn. The man must have done something to provoke that reaction.”
Reports say that the twosome didn’t seem to be under the influence of anything. Dennis was arrested and charged with felony assault, while her boyfriend was given stitches for his injuries and was later charged with criminal obstruction of breathing–a misdemeanor. So…someone tries to choke you, you defend yourself, and you get into more trouble than them? Crazy! Can’t say that I advocate violence of this proportion (not a fan of violence at all), but you just can’t choke all your problems away all willy-nilly and think someone won’t lay their hands on you too…
