A man was arrested for domestic battery after allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face and spitting on her.
Jeffrey Evans, 38, was arrested for domestic violence after his live-in girlfriend of four months called the Coral Springs Police Department after he allegedly attacked her while intoxicated.
According to the police report, when officers arrived on the scene on July 3, at approximately 12:49 a.m., they heard screaming coming from the home and witnessed the victim storming out of the front door screaming for help as Evans chased after her. The girlfriend ran behind the officer asking for help and claiming that her boyfriend hit her.
Once Evans saw police, he stopped in the doorway of the residence, pacing back and forth while screaming and cursing at his girlfriend.
After entering the residence, Evans chose not to speak with police about the incident. They explained they were there to investigate a domestic violence incident and were offering him an opportunity to give his side of the story. They also noticed several bloody marks on Evans’ forehead, which he claimed were due to a fall and declined medical attention.
According to the arrest report, the victim feared that Evans was going to continue to hurt her and told police that he was intoxicated and that after having several verbal arguments, Evans became aggressive with her.
She attempted to leave the residence, but Evans blocked her way and started punching her in the face, hit her in the back of the head, aggressively grabbed her arm, and spit on her.
Officers observed bruising to the victim’s lower lip, hand marks on her arm, and saliva running down her back. She provided officers with pictures documenting her injuries and said she was willing to give a sworn statement.
They also noted in the arrest report that Evans was extremely uncooperative, belligerent, and refused to provide them with any personal information.
Evans, who is listed as a Davie Fire Department employee on the police report, was arrested and taken into custody for domestic battery. He was transported to Broward Health Coral Springs for medical clearance and then transferred to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
