Brandon Chviek Allegedly Assaulted Girlfriend After She Broke His Bong

If you love marijuana, you generally feel quite strongly about the apparatus with which you smoke it. For one man, that might have been a little too much.

Brandon Chviek, 20, was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend after she broke his beloved bong. He has been charged with domestic battery and strangulation, aggravated assault and possession of drug paraphernalia.

After Chviek's live-in girlfriend shattered the bong, Chviek allegedly pointed a gun at her before hitting her until she fell to the ground and then choking her, according to the Miami New Times. At the time, she was convinced Chviek would kill her, she later told police.

The girlfriend managed to escape and appeared at the sheriff's office with a bruise on her cheek and several scratches, said Gainesville Police Department spokesman Officer Ben Tobias, according to the Gainesville Sun.

Chviek later told police that he had acted out of self-defense after his girlfriend tried to trap him in their apartment and that he does not own a gun, reported the Sun.

He is currently in Alachua County Jail on $27,000 bond.

In other tales of men loving their bongs a tad too much, a Nebraska man was arrested for smoking marijuana out of a bong with his cat stuffed inside. The man accounted for his actions by explaining that his cat had been very hyper and he was trying to calm her down.
