The two were feuding over which Halloween event to attend when the man allegedly attacked.
A 19-year-old Florida man was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend Saturday night. According to the cops, the man, Patrick Gallway, did it while wearing an inflatable dinosaur costume. The police report the Smoking Gun made available alleges that the incident started when Patrick Galloway demanded that he and his girlfriend go to a Halloween party, and she told him she didn’t want to go.
According to the report, the girlfriend told Gallway that she thought she and Patrick should spend the evening with friends and watch movies vs. going to the Halloween party. That’s when an argument was initiated between the pair. At that time, Gallway proceeded to hurl his new cellphone on the couch, breaking parts of it. The girlfriend then walked out of the living room in an attempt to defuse the escalating argument.
That’s when the dinosaur-clad Galloway followed her and attacked her, according to the police report. The document states that Gallway shoved her to push her to the ground and held her there by her neck. The report additionally states that he made punching motions and flailed his arms toward the area of her face while holding her down.
None of the motions made contact with the woman, and according to the police, John Gallway eventually released his grip and she was able to get up. After the alleged attack, the report states that the girlfriend said that he demanded that she go withdraw money from her bank account and reimburse him for his broken cell phone.
She “reluctantly agreed’ to do so, according to the police, and the pair left to the bank in separate vehicles and went to the bank. She withdrew $20 from the bank, gave it to him and he left. The girlfriend proceeded to drive to her friend’s home, and they convinced her during her visit to contact the police.
A patrolman noted while taking her statement that there were red marks present on the right side of the woman’s neck and upper torso. The victim informed the cops that her and Gallway were in a “strained relationship.”
Much of the police report is centered around the girlfriend’s account. However, a witness supported her account, and he told the cops that he had to pull apart the quarreling pair.
Patrick Gallway was pulled over by the police of St. Lucie county and arrested on Sunday when he returned to his home from the Halloween Party. The police noted that “the inflatable dinosaur costume was present in the front passenger seat” during his arrest.
The police charged the Florida man with battery, which is a misdemeanor. Gallway was released from custody on October 28.
