Brian Anscomb, Lawyer, Makes His Girlfriend Eat an iPhone
Today in unprecedented relationship/crime news, Brian Anscomb, a 37-year-old patent attorney in a fight with his 23-year-old girlfriend, "force-fed" an iPhone to her during a fight in their Upper East Side apartment on Saturday, according to the New York Post. This is hard to imagine. Yet, it happened, apparently, cutting and bruising her mouth. Earlier this month he'd cracked her cell phone in half when she tried to call the police during another fight. In the most recent case, he also punched her in the eye when she tried to get the hell out of there. He has been arrested. She, we hope, is not waiting for his return. No report on the status of the phone. [NYP]
