A Zephyrhills man was arrested Sunday after beating his pregnant live-in girlfriend, according to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office.
Jimmy Henderson, 22, 8648 Hamster Circle, is charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant female.
About 5 p.m. Sunday, Henderson grabbed a hair straightener the victim was holding and tried to take it away, an arrest report said. During the struggle, the victim, who is 5 months pregnant with Henderson’s child, fell to the floor on her stomach.
Henderson jumped on top of her and struck her in the stomach, deputies said.
The woman was taken to Florida Hospital Zephyrhills for treatment.
Henderson told deputies he did struggle with her to take the flat iron away, but said he did not fall on top of her.
Henderson remains in the Land O’ Lakes Jail with no bail.
