A Baton Rouge man accused of trying to strangle his girlfriend after she failed to bring home the food he wanted was arrested Friday.

The victim told police she and her boyfriend of three months, Michael Williams, had been arguing because he believed she was seeing another man, according to a police report.

Williams was also angry that the woman hadn’t brought home food, and cursed at her when she suggested that he “get in the car and get his own food,” the report says.

The woman tried to run away, but Williams followed her outside and grabbed her neck, the report says. The woman’s brother separated the couple after he heard them arguing and went outside.

A police officer wrote in the report that she didn’t notice any redness or bruises on the victim’s neck.

Williams, 47, told police his girlfriend was lying and denied putting his hands on her, the report says.

The woman’s 12-year-old daughter was at the home during the struggle, the report says.

Williams, 7953 Starwood Court, was booked into Parish Prison on a count of battery/domestic abuse by strangulation. His bond information was not immediately available in online booking records.
