A self-described “conservative” man, who is “obsessed with Fox News and the Republican party” was arrested in Florida after trying to strangle his girlfriend. The police report states “he was very conservative and (his girlfriend) was a liberal,” and adds, ”he felt that he was going to have to kill her,” and noted it was his third attempt.
“David A. Kappheim, 60, is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bail,” the Palm Berach Post reports:
He was arrested Tuesday and the arresting Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy placed Kappheim under a Baker Act. Kappheim is facing charges of domestic battery, aggravated assault and criminal mischief.
On Saturday, Kappheim showed up at her friend’s house uninvited and “stark naked,” she said, according to the arrest report.
She said he tried strangling her the next day.
The couple lived together but she asked him to move out. On Tuesday, Kappheim asked to borrow her car so he could move his belongings out. The woman said she agreed but asked him to drive her to work first.
Throughout the ride, the woman said Kappheim drove “recklessly.” When she asked him not to kill her, he allegedly responded by laughing out loud. On Wednesday, she called the sheriff’s office for help.
