When Trying To Force Your Ex Girlfriend To Sign Off On That Restraining Order Dismissal, Try Not Getting Her Blood On It
Salt Lake City: A Salt Lake City man was charged for stalking and beating his former girlfriend in order to get her to sign papers to dismiss a stalking order against him.
The 42-year-old man was charged in 3rd District Court with retaliation against a witness, or victim, a third-degree felony; stalking, a class A misdemeanor; and assault, unlawful detention and threat of violence, all class B misdemeanors.
The man and woman dated for about a year before breaking up in 2011. Since that time, the man had been stalking the woman, sending emails demanding money and threatening text messages, and calling her as many as 70 times a day, according to court records. He would also follow her and physically assault her, court records state.
The woman had called police numerous times and, in February, a judge granted a temporary civil stalking order against the man, according to court documents.
On March 1, the woman was moving out of her old apartment because the man knew where she lived. When the woman got out of her car, the man ran toward her. The woman got back in her car, but couldn’t lock it before the man opened the door and said, “if you don’t give me your keys, I’ll snap your neck,” according to court documents.
As the woman tried to fight back, he grabbed the keys and started shoving her head into the steering wheel. He then grabbed her by the hair and dragged her out of the car, “pulling out a clump of hair in the process,” court records state.
The man showed her several papers and demanded she sign them or he would break her neck. He slapped the woman’s face and shoved her back into the car. The woman saw a car approaching and tried to wave her hands and honk her car horn for help. The driver of a car stopped and asked what was wrong. The man said the woman was just “crazy,” according to court documents.
The woman agreed to sign the papers, which were now smeared with blood, if the man gave her keys to the woman in the car. After she signed the documents, the man said he knew about her calling the police on him in the past. He said, “if you call the police, I will track you down for as long as it takes and kill you,” court records state.
The man got in his truck and drove away and later submitted the blood-stained motion to dismiss the stalking documents in 3rd District Court, court records state.
Damn this is some Sleeping With The Enemy level shit. That definitely takes some balls though huh? Getting papers that would dismiss the restraining order against you, stalking and assaulting your ex girlfriend beating and threatening her to sign to the point he gets her blood on the actual document. And then actually taking said blood soaked document to the courts to try to get it dismissed! This dude is many cards short of a full deck for sure. This lady better watch out. I guess the saying goes both ways: Don’t stick your dick in crazy, but also don’t let crazy stick his dick in you!
I’m sure everyone is thinking, how do you date someone for a year before realizing the person’s crazy… well, the TRULY crazy ones are really really good at hiding the crazy for a long period of time. Or the crazy gradually rears it’s ugly head through the relationship until they are beating your head against your steering wheel like in the movies.
