Portland Asshole Arrested for Strangling Girlfriend with Dreadlock

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Jezebel.com

32-year-old Portland resident Caleb Grotberg was arrested around 2:30am yesterday morning, after police received a call alerting them to a domestic dispute in which Grotberg allegedly physically assaulted his girlfriend and attempted to choke her with one of his stanky-as-fuck dreadlocks. The woman was then brought to the hospital where she was treated for "numerous, non-life-threatening injuries." Grotberg, who may or may not be the same guy that insistently kept asking you for money to score some "horse" at last year's Bonnaroo, was taken into custody and will be arraigned on charges of kidnapping, assault, menacing, strangulation, and domestic violence later today.

2. Come to Portland Maine where we have many fewer people with skanky-as-fuck dreadlocks

Though we do have crazy people walking around randomly with guns.

12. Here is an idiot from a few weeks ago on a trail I walk regularly

Most people here are sane, but a few of the crazies from way up north have found their way down to the southern part of the date.

8. Assault with a deadly weapon?

Domestic violence isn't funny, but somehow this image strikes me as. . . . strange?

10. Did you believe that Portland was a violence-free paradise until this story came out?

Is it possible for a place to be considered friendly while still having a non-zero crime rate? I hope so, because there's no place with a non-zero crime rate, but plenty of places that seem friendly to me.

13. Now you have a response? What, that Portland isn't friendly after all?

Have you no sense of reality?
