Man Charged With Swinging Alligator At Girlfriend During Fight
<snip>

PORT ORANGE, Fla. -- A man is facing battery charges after sheriff's officials say he swung a three-foot alligator at his girlfriend during an argument.

David Havenner, 41, was scheduled for a bond hearing Saturday in Volusia County; he was held overnight Friday at the county's Branch Jail on misdemeanor charges of battery and possession of an alligator, officials said.

Sheriff's officials said Havenner was keeping the gator in his bathtub and swung it at his girlfriend, Nancy Monico, 39, during an argument Friday morning.

"This will be one more Volusia story that makes the national news," Volusia sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson said.

Monico told investigators that Havenner beat her with his fists, then grabbed the gator and swung it at her as she tried to escape. The gator struck Monico at least once, after which time Havenner threw empty beer bottles at her and then kicked her out of their mobile home, she told investigators.
