From the report: 

According to a Sheriff’s Office report, an argument occurred Monday afternoon between Domond and his fiancée. During the dispute, while she was leaning over the crib of their “newborn baby,” Domond allegedly “grabbed her from behind by the neck,” lifted her off the ground and dropped her, the report says.

The woman told deputies she “began to lose consciousness,” the report says, and she “almost blacked out.” At some point during the argument, Domond allegedly grabbed a bandana from his fiancées head. In response, she sprayed him with pepper spray, the report says.

The woman told deputies Domond then picked her up and “slammed her on the couch,” the report says. She also told them Domond bit her on her hip, prompting her to spray him again with pepper spray, the report says.
