A Marion County man was jailed recently after being accused of punching his lady friend in the face after she rejected his efforts to tongue-kiss her.
The victim told Marion County sheriff’s deputies that she and 58-year-old Lawrence Naeder had been in a verbal altercation over the number of alcoholic beverages he consumes. She said she went into a bedroom and he came in and placed a toilet paper roll under her chin and then began to forcefully tongue-kiss her. She said she didn’t want him to kiss her but didn’t say anything out of fear for what he might do, a sheriff’s office report states.
The victim said Naeder went away and she started researching domestic violence shelters. She said he re-entered the room, became angry and wanted to know what she was researching. She said he pushed her away from her laptop and took the computer outside with him, the report says.
After being read his rights, Naeder admitted that he tried to kiss the victim and she pulled away from him, indicating she didn’t wish to have “physical affection.” He said he then left her alone and walked outside and all also denied all of the victim’s other allegations, the report says.
While deputies were speaking with the victim outside the residence, Naeder started yelling across the yard toward her and was being “extremely hostile,” the report says. He was then placed under arrest and transported to the Marion County Jail, where he was charged with simple domestic battery.
