An elderly Florida manâ€™s passionate backing of Donald Trump for President didnâ€™t mesh too well with his wifeâ€™s equal passion for Hillary Clinton.
78-year-old Lawrence Littman threw his 73-year-old wife Elvia to the floor during the melee.
The victim called 911 and told responding deputies that during the argument, her husband â€œcalled her many derogatory names then grabbed her wrist and threw her on a chair in the bedroom.â€
She says she then went into a bedroom on the other side of the house to get away from her husband of 20 years. He then â€œfollowed her, grabbed her by the arm again, and slung her to the ground.â€ She says that she â€œhurt her butt/backside when she hit the ground.â€
Mr. Littman told investigators that theyâ€™d been arguing about politics when his wife â€œtried to slap him in the face,â€ so he â€œshoved her back and she slipped and fell to the ground.â€
He was taken into custody and charged with battery on a person over 65; a felony.
He pleaded not guilty and was freed on a $500 bond. In the meantime, heâ€™s been ordered to have no contact with his wife.
