Testicle Tangle

JANUARY 19--The dispute started with an impolitic remark about a lone testicle, records show.

Curtis McCoy, 46, and his husband of 10 years got into an argument late Sunday evening that “escalated since they have been drinking alcohol,” according to South Carolina police.

The couple, who live in Myrtle Beach, were arguing when McCoy allegedly “brought up how the victim only has one testicle which caused the victim to get upset.” As the dispute continued, the victim pointed his finger at McCoy and yelled back at his spouse, cops say.

McCoy allegedly grabbed his husband’s finger and twisted it, “causing him pain.”

After initially denying to police that he had touched his spouse, McCoy reportedly said, “I only grabbed his finger and twisted it when he pointed it at me.” He added that the couple “learned their lesson from last time they both got arrested for domestic violence.”

Seen above, McCoy was arrested for domestic violence and booked into the local jail on the misdemeanor count. He was released from custody yesterday after posting a $2120 personal recognizance bond.

McCoy’s rap sheet includes convictions for shoplifting, disorderly conduct, assault and battery, larceny, receiving stolen goods, and obtaining property under false pretenses. (1 page)
