The veritable New York Post reports a digitally inspired domestic abuse case today: Brian Anscomb, a 37-year old patent attorney reportedly jammed an iPhone down his 23-year old girlfriend’s throat.

The NY Post reports that it wasn’t his first ‘phone flipout’ — earlier this month, he allegedly snapped her cellphone in half when she tried to call cops during one of their fights.

The “force feeding” took place this past weekend during an argument at Anscomb’s apartment in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Anscomb’s lawyer is denying the allegations but his girlfriend suffered bruising and cuts on her mouth. Anscomb was arrested on Sunday.

To the 23-year old lady: honey, I think it’s time to dump this loser and move out of the Upper East Side.
