It would have been more severe, but after the initial assault, he turned his ankle.
Disclaimer: No one should joke about domestic assault! The above comment is in poor taste, and cowardly as well since the author is hiding behind an anonymous internet identity. In his defence, he was actually making fun of the accused, and not the victim nor the act of assault itself. And let’s not forget, the accused is … well, accused of domestic assault! Do we really need to be so concerned about hurting his feelings? If so, then maybe we, as a society, should not name people publicly until they are actually convicted of a crime. That’s right, this disclaimer has pivoted to blaming society as a way to deflect attention from the tasteless and inappropriate comment made above. You should all be ashamed of yourselves!
