A Florida man is facing battery charges after police say he attacked a woman in a dispute regarding his Facebook relationship status.
When the woman asked 21-year-old Eric Wilson why he was newly listed as single, he pushed her against a brick wall and threatened to shoot her, Palm Bay police told WKMG.
Police said he also shouted obscenities at her and broke a television set in the victim’s home.
Wilson was then taken to the Brevard County Detention Center and was released with community supervision, according to court records.
A county judge in a Feb. 12 hearing ruled that Wilson was not allowed to contact the woman or return to her home. His court appearance for battery charges is later this month.
