Matt McDonald, a memorable contestant from Season 9 of the hit CBS reality series Big Brother, was arrested for allegedly beating his pregnant girlfriend.
The Boston District Attorney's Office says Matt McDonald was taken into custody Sunday around 3:30 p.m. after an ugly spat over allegations of infidelity.
The self-proclaimed "biggest liar/sweet talker" on the show was charged with assault and battery and aggravated assault and battery ... a serious charge.
This is because the victim is eight weeks pregnant.
According to the police, Matt and his baby mama got into an argument "over a text message on her cell phone the victim received from an old friend."
At that point, "the suspect accused the victim of cheating on her, attacking the victim by grabbing her arms, dragging her into a different room and strangling the victim stating 'I hope the baby dies and hope u [sic] have a miscarriage." Wow.
BIG (BROTHER) HOUSE: Matt McDonald could be sequestered for awhile.
The next day, the woman alleges, the former Big Brother houseguest returned from the store and accused her of pouring water on his plasma TV, breaking it.
McDonald then kicked her in the collarbone while she was sitting, then put her in a headlock and punched her in the arms, per the report. And it gets worse.
The victim claimed he later phoned her father, at which point she screamed for help, prompting Matt to shout, "Shut the f--k up or I'll punch you in the face."
She also contends McDonald threatened to off her dad if he called the cops.
It was then she ran out of the apartment and sought out police, who observed bruises and red marks on her collarbone, neck and arms, according to reports.
McDonald has pleaded not guilty. Interesting side note - that season of BB was won by Adam Jasinski, who was recently busted for running a drug ring.
