A man in Kingman, Arizona, was jailed Tuesday after police say he assaulted his girlfriend because she wasn't cooking dinner as quickly as he wanted.
Dustin Eric Green, 27, allegedly first threatened the 22-year-old with a rubber mallet, then put his hands around her throat until she couldn't breathe, according to the Kingman Daily Miner.
Deputies say the woman then grabbed a knife and stabbed her boyfriend in the leg, and he responded by beating the back of her head, ABC 6 reports.
Green allegedly told deputies that his girlfriend grabbed the knife first, and that he choked her in self-defense. However, the woman "said that Green, her boyfriend, became upset with her because she didn't cook dinner fast enough," Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter told the Daily Miner.
Green was charged with aggravated assault.
Dreamin' Demon discovered that Green was convicted of assault and domestic violence in 2012 and spent a year in jail.
