A woman accused her long-term boyfriend of slapping her in the face several times after she shared with him that she might enjoy paying a visit to a swingers club.
32-year-old Zacharie Nelson and his girlfriend of four years share a home in Pinellas Park, Florida at the Palm Grove Village mobile home park.
In the early morning hours on May 12, Nelson and his significant other were spending time at home when the woman reportedly mentioned that she might like to go to a swingers club.
As defined by Wikipedia, “Sex clubs, also known as swinger clubs or lifestyle clubs, are formal or informal groups that organize sex-related activities, or establishments where patrons can engage in sex acts with other patrons.”
Upon hearing her interest in patronizing that type of place, Nelson allegedly slapped his girlfriend across the face many times as a purported show of disdain over the idea.
The Pinellas Park Police Department learned about the alleged domestic violence incident and when they arrived at the dwelling they noted that the woman was sporting “redness on her face.” They believed it was likely caused by Nelson hitting her.
Nelson was placed under arrest and he is facing charges for suspicion of domestic battery for the accusations, and he was booked into the Pinellas County Jail.
He was released on his own recognizance, and the judge ordered that Nelson must wear an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet (also known as a SCRAM, which stands for “Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring”) so that it will detect and report to the law if he drinks any alcoholic beverages.
The alleged victim expressed that she did not want her boyfriend banned from seeing her, and it was ordered that Nelson will be permitted to continue living in their shared residence if he desires.
