Carlos Gascon.   (Monroe County Sheriff’s Department)

(Newser) – A Florida man allegedly imprisoned his girlfriend in his house all day Friday and beat her savagely—because he dreamed she had cheated on him, CBS Local reports. She finally called for help when her boyfriend, Carlos Gascon, 27, passed out around 7pm at her Summerland Key home. The sheriff's department says that Gascon threatened her, sliced her leg, put a knife to her throat, splashed hot coffee on her, and threw her down on a glass table so hard that it broke, the Miami Herald reports. Oddly, Gascon is also said to have thrown his own dog on the ground and held its neck down with his foot.

Throughout the ordeal, authorities say the woman couldn’t call police or get help because Gascon had thrown her car keys and cell phone in a canal behind her house. Now in jail on $265,000 bond, Gascon is facing a host of charges including aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and animal cruelty.

I wonder if his mug shot is going to go viral and women all over the place will lust after him which will earn him a modeling contract

I am sorry, but I found this serious situation funny. We go from wife abuse to dog abuse? Did this guy dream the woman was doing the dog????
