(CBS12) — NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A mid-state man who allegedly assaulted and strangled his girlfriend received a quick dose of karma after the woman grabbed him by his genitals and held him until police arrived.
According to statements from witnesses and the victim, 55-year-old Maurice B. Gray came home "extremely intoxicated" and began throwing items out of the refrigerator, breaking a pan and pouring beer out on the floors.
The victim confronted Gray about his actions and he allegedly struck the woman with several "upper cuts" then pinned the woman down and strangled her. She was able to break free by securing "a grip on the defendant's testicles in self-defense" and he stopped.
