PALM BAY, Florida – A man was arrested after he pulled out an AR-15 style rifle during an argument with his girlfriend, Palm Bay Police said.
Officers were dispatched to a home located at the 1400 block of Hero Street about a physical disturbance.
A woman told police that she was arguing with her boyfriend, identified as 32-year-old Richard Lynn Robinson, after he returned from the hospital.
“As the defendant was yelling and cussing, he entered their shared master bedroom and removed an AR-15 style rifle from the gun safe,” a Palm Bay officer said.
The girlfriend, with a baby in her arms, then called Robinson’s father about his actions. But, he grabbed the phone and her arms several times before shoving her, according to the affidavit.
Robinson then walked into the dining room and “slammed the firearm on a dining room table,” the report said.
Robinson’s reason for pulling out the AR-15 rifle was because he “was signing the firearm over to the victim,” according to the arrest affidavit.
The Palm Bay man also said he was “simply attempting to retrieve the phone” from his girlfriend.
Robinson was arrested and charged with Battery Domestic Violence.
DISCLAIMER: Arrests and mugshots were made public by complaint affidavits, arrest affidavits, and police reports. All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
