A British man was arrested for squirting brown sauce in his girlfriend’s face in retaliation for reading the saucy tome, “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Raymond Hodgson, 31, also allegedly slapped Emma McCormick, his girlfriend of five years, after discovering she had been reading the novel he called “pornographic” and “distasteful,” according to the Carlisle News & Star.
The couple had been arguing for two days via text message until Hodgson arrived to McCormick’s home when she refused to put down the erotica, a prosecutor said in court, according to the News & Star.
McCormick then called the police, who arrested Hodgson. He denied slapping her, but pleaded guilty to common assault for which he was ordered to pay a fine. He was also appointed a 6-week nightly curfew, the paper reported.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is the year’s best-selling novel. Commonly referred to as “mommy porn,” the first novel in the Fifty Shades trilogy set a record as the fastest-selling paperback of all time, according to the Guardian.
