TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A Tallahassee man is facing aggravated battery charges after allegedly throwing a hot iron at the back of his girlfriend's head.
Deputies with the Leon County Sheriff's Office responded to a residence in the 800 block of Putnam Drive on December 4 in reference to a domestic disturbance.
The victim told police she was arguing with her boyfriend while he was ironing a shirt in the bedroom of the home. The victim said she told her boyfriend, later identified as 32-year-old Edward Jackson, that she needed to leave the residence because their relationship was over.
According to arrest documents, Jackson threw the iron he was using at the back of the woman's head. Jackson then picked up the iron and left the area on foot.
Deputies found the iron sitting outside of the home and said it appeared to have singed hair on the heating surface. The victim also suffered a 2.5 inch cut on the back of her neck that required three stitches.
Jackson was taken into custody Monday and has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He is being held on a $10,000 bond.
