Man Arrested for Punching Fiancé in Lobby of SpringHill Suites Marriott

The fiancé said she did not fear for her safety since she is “bigger than him,” according to the police report.

A St. Paul man was arrested at the SpringHill Suites Marriott in St. Louis Park on Dec. 15 after his fiancé told the desk manager that “he just hit me.”

The man’s fiancé told police they were arguing in the lobby about past relationships when he punched her in the face. The woman declined medical attention.

The front desk manager told police that he saw the couple arguing in the lobby and exchange cuss words around 2 a.m. He said they then went around the corner and he heard “slapping noises” before the woman came to the counter, holding her face with her hand, and saying that she had been hit.

The desk manager then called 911, and the couple went upstairs to their room.

The man told police that he had been at a Christmas party at Park Tavern and that he did not hit his fiancé.

The man will not be charged for intent to cause fear of immediate bodily harm because his fiancé told police she did not fear for her safety since she is “bigger than him.”

This article would be clearer in meaning if the headline and story had read "fiancee," to denote a female.

What world do you live in Mike? The story I read and see posted above clearly states the the victim was the man's fiance, albeit they spelled it differently but the meaning is more than clear. Perhaps you are not aware that there are different, yet correct, spellings for that word.
