A Florida man battered his ex-wife after accusing her of cheating on him with a sex toy, according to police who arrested him yesterday for domestic battery.
As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, Triston Horne, 36, was visiting his former spouse’s Bradenton home last Wednesday when the pair began to argue. Misty Clark told police that Horne does not live at the residence, though she “does invite him over to the house.”
Clark invited Horne over on July 1 to spend the night because “he was going to take her to work” the following day, cops noted.
While in Clark’s bedroom, the duo quarreled. When Clark repaired to the bathroom, Horne barged in and “began accusing her of cheating on him. He told her that she was cheating on him with a sex toy,” according to the affidavit.
After allegedly twisting Clark’s hand, Horne returned to the bedroom, where he “grabbed Misty’s sex toy and went back to the bathroom.” Horned then "snapped the sex toy in half and walked away."
With the help of her teenage daughter, Clark subsequently pushed Horne out of the residence. Clark told cops that she used to be married to Horne, but “later learned that Triston was already married to another person and that their marriage was null and void.”
Seen above, Horne was arrested yesterday on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. He is being held in the county jail in lieu of $1500 bond.
While Horne’s rap sheet includes three prior domestic battery arrests, charges were eventually dropped in each of those cases.
