A Gainesville man has been arrested by the Gainesville Police Department on allegations he beat his girlfriend so badly she needed treatment at a hospital for injuries.
Todd Jerome Frazier, 45, of 3403 NE 11th Terrace, was charged with felony battery, domestic battery by strangulation, depriving a crime victim of medical care and hindering communication to law enforcement, according to an arrest report.
The incident occurred April 11 when Frazier came home and began arguing with the woman.
Police reported the woman told them Frazier hit her in the face and head, choked her, slammed her head into kitchen and hallway walls and pulled hair out of her head.
The woman asked Frazier to take her to the hospital, but he initially declined unless she agreed to not report the incident to police, the report states.
She eventually went to the hospital after she agreed to let Frazier accompany her, the report states.
After being arrested, Frazier was booked into the jail, where he remained Friday in lieu of $50,000 bond.
