Man spent day beating girlfriend and assaulted his dog after dreaming she was cheating on him

A Florida man was arrested after beating his girlfriend after he had a dream she cheated on him, according to police.

Carlos Gascon's girlfriend told Monroe County Sheriff's deputies that Gascon beat her all day on Friday. She was able to call for help at 6:45pm after Gascon passed out at his home in Ocean Drive.

Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin says the woman reported that Gascon "was angry at her because he had a dream she was cheating on him." The woman accused Gascon of choking her, pouring hot coffee on her, cutting the back of her leg with a knife, and threatening to kill her while holding a knife to her throat.

Gascon, 27, also allegedly picked her up and slammed her down on a glass table, breaking it. Gascon's girlfriend also alleges that he picked up his dog, slammed it on the ground and put his foot on the dog's neck. Gascon faces charges of aggravated battery, aggravated assault, domestic battery by strangulation, battery, false imprisonment and animal cruelty. He is in the Keys jail under a $265,000 bond.
