You may have visualized cramming someone's cellphone down his or her throat out of sheer frustration on occasion, but odds are that you've never acted on such a violent thought — unlike one New York City patent attorney.
Apparently 37-year-old Brian Anscomb was recently arrested after accusations that he'd "force-fed" an iPhone to his girlfriend during an argument. According to court papers referenced by the New York Post, this attack bruised and cut the mouth of the 23-year-old woman.
While Anscomb's lawyer denies "all of the allegations" connected to the incident, it is notable that the New York Post suggests that this may not be the first time the couple had a fight which ended with cellphone-related violence:
It wasn't [Anscomb's] first phone flipout — on July 10, he allegedly cracked [his girlfriend's] cellphone in half when she tried to call cops during a nasty squabble.
Anscomb then slugged her in the eye as she tried to flee, court papers claim.
It's also worth pointing out that there appears to be a lack of information regarding the particulars of the most recent incident. We are not told exactly how Anscomb attacked the young woman nor how he managed to force an object the shape and size of an iPhone down her throat — something which would probably lead many to experience a great deal of discomfort and resistance as well as the urge to vomit.
Based on these details as well as the absence of further information, we are left believing that the force-feeding described by the New York Post — while an incredibly violent attack — likely did not leave the woman even close to actually being forced to swallow a gadget.
