A man who wanted to kick out his girlfriend from his motel room, decided to slam a plat of shrimp into her face, according to police in Florida.

West Palm Beach police said that they have arrested 26-year-old Maurice Davis, after being accused of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend.

Davis has been charged with battery on a pregnant woman. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, and her bail has been set at $4,000.

According to the police investigation, the couple has been together for three years.

The incident unfolded on Sunday, after Davis had a dispute with his girlfriend, who was not identified, at the motel they were staying.

Davis then knocked a plate of shrimp out of his pregnant girlfriend's hands and slammed it into her face. Davis then pushed her out of the motel room.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, did not see any visible injuries on the woman. The woman insisted on being checked out by a doctor because she was six weeks pregnant with Davis’ child.
