Cornelius Jefferson, 33, allegedly choked the girlfriend he had met online after moving from Georgia to Kentucky to meet her in person.
Angry that his girlfriend looked nothing like her online profile, Jefferson began by arguing with her and ended by reportedly assaulting her at 4:20 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department stated on its Facebook page, “The argument was allegedly because the male subject didn’t think she was like she was on the internet. He allegedly choked her with both hands around the neck and threw food on her and left the scene on foot with two suitcases.”
Deputies showed up at the scene of the attack and arrested Jefferson, who was strolling near the scene. He was charged with fourth-degree assault, according to My Fox Atlanta, and is being held in the Laurel County detention facility.
