LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – An argument by a couple over Facebook resulted in the arrest of a Louisville man for assaulting a woman.

A Louisville Metro Police arrest report says during the argument Kenneth G. Thompson, 29, shoved the woman's head into a door frame. After she fell to the floor, Thompson is accused of trying to strangle her.

The woman was able to free herself, but Thompson attempted to strangle her on several more occasions. At one point the woman lost consciousness for a brief time and came to on the floor gasping for breath. The report says Thompson kneed her in the groin as she got up from the floor.

When the woman tried to run for the door and leave Thompson beat her there and held her against her will. According to the report, Thompson kept asking the woman about Facebook and would hit her across the face if he didn't like the answer she gave.

Thompson was arrested April 29 on charges of wanton endangerment, unlawful imprisonment and assault-domestic violence.

The woman was treated a University of Louisville Hospital for her injuries.
