A man became angry at his girlfriend because her dog defecated in his car, police in Florida said.

The Ocala Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested the man accused of throwing dog feces on his pregnant girlfriend and hitting her in the head as she drove the car.

Daniel Redding, 25, was arrested on Monday, on a charge of aggravated assault. He was arguing with the 20-year-old female driver, who is seven months pregnant, after her dog had defecated on the floor of the vehicle.

The woman said that when she and Redding were in the 700 block of Southwest 38th Avenue, they began to argue. Later, Redding picked up the dog mess and threw it at her.

The woman said that Redding also hit her repeatedly in the head. Redding grabbed the wheel and started pulling it back and forth, police said.

The vehicle stopped in the middle of the road, where Redding got out and ran. He then called the police.

Redding denied hitting the woman, and said that she punched him in the face. He was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail.

The victim was evaluated at the scene and was in good health, officials said. She refused to go to a hospital.
