Oregon Man Arrested for Choking Girlfriend With His Own Dreadlocks

There's not much to report about this story but here you go: 32-year-old Portland, Oregon resident Caleb Grotberg was arrested early Monday morning after he allegedly choked his girlfriend with his own dreadlocks.

According to Portland police, officers responded to a domestic violence report at a residence in the 3200 block of Southeast 22nd Avenue at about 2:30 a.m. A woman told officers that her boyfriend, Grotberg, had assaulted her, and then choked her with his dreadlocks. Officers searched the neighborhood and located Grotberg, taking him into custody.

Grotberg faces charges of second-degree kidnapping, second-degree attempted assault, fourth-degree assault, menacing and domestic violence.
