Big Brother star Matt McDonald was arrested and charged with assault and battery after allegedly attacking his pregnant girlfriend over the weekend reports TMZ.
According to the Boston Police Department his girlfriend, who is eight weeks pregnant showed up at a local police station to file a complaint telling the police, “he began strangling me and yelling, I hope the baby dies and hope you have a miscarriage.”
The argument started shortly after the reality star accused her of cheating and that’s when it became violent. Officers observed visible bruising on the girlfriends neck, arms and collarbone. McDonald, 26, told the police that he was simply defending himself.
During the heated battle McDonald called the victim’s father on the phone and threatened to kill him if he called the cops. McDonald has been released from jail and will be in court to face his charges next month.
