Katie Lee Pitchford has been arrested for squeezing her boyfriend's genitals until they bled during a heated argument, police say.
Katie Lee Pitchford, 21, was arrested on June 4 after cops responded to reports of an assault at a home in Indian Harbour Beach, about 70 miles from Orlando.
A man called police at 3.47am saying his live-in girlfriend, who he's been dating for nearly three years, assaulted him after she became 'enraged' during an argument, according to the police report.
When cops arrived to the scene the victim was found with his face bloodied and bruising.
In the arrest report Pitchford claimed they got into a fight because she wanted to go on a date with an old friend and her boyfriend found out by seeing the text messages on her phone and became jealous. But she says the confrontation was only verbal - not physical.
Pitchford said that earlier that evening the couple had been out drinking and then went to the beach where Pitchford fell and suffered scrapes and bruises to her legs. The couple then returned home and the boyfriend helped but bandages on her injuries.
The boyfriend told police the same story of the beach and the fall but says that Pitchford suddenly attacked him out of the blue as he was sleeping in bed by grabbing him by the scrotum.
The boyfriend told police that Pitchford grabbed him 'by his balls and squeezed them until they bled.'
He said that Pitchford beat him with a brush, hit him 'with her fists and scratched the left side of his face' then put her hand around his throat so hard he couldn't breathe.
He says he never struck her back and tried to block her blows. He managed to wrestle her by the arms and escape to call police.
Pitchford, a hairstylist and colorist, was arrested for battery and accused of violating her probation.
She had previously been arrested in November 2017 for resisting an officer with violence, according to the Miami Herald.
A month before that in October 2017 she was also arrested for theft from a motor vehicle and resisting an officer with violence.
She maintained to police that their fight was only verbal.
Once handcuffed and placed in the police squad car she reportedly 'asked if she could talk to the victim because she wanted to say she was sorry.'
She was detained by the Brevard County Sheriff's office on no bond and will appear in court on June 25.
While Pitchford wanted to give her apologies, a Brevard County Judge ordered her to have no contact with the victim.
She is only allowed to return to his home to retrieve her belongings if she is accompanied by police, according to Florida Today.
