SANTA ROSA BEACH – A Georgia man was arrested and charged with domestic battery after allegedly trying to throw his girlfriend off the balcony of their vacation rental.
Walton County Sheriff’s Office deputies found her lying on the balcony yelling in pain.
The 60-year-old suspect told deputies he and the victim are engaged. He said he took her phone and went through it and discovered she was cheating on him.
He confronted her while she was sitting on a chair on the balcony, he said. She leaned toward him, possibly to push him, and he pushed her back, he told deputies.
The details changed as he told and retold the story, they noted.
The victim said he confronted her about cheating and then picked her up in her chair and tried to throw her over the balcony.
Her head hit the railing causing him to drop her and the chair, at which point he left.
She was screaming due to the pain while she was loaded onto the ambulance, according to his arrest report.
