The Collier County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a Naples neighborhood around 2 a.m. Sunday on a report of a woman with an infant knocking on doors and saying she had been attacked by her boyfriend, WBBH-TV, Fort Myers, reported Friday.
The woman told deputies her boyfriend, Hai Tan Nguyen, 46, had gotten angry at her at a party earlier in the evening because she was singing karaoke and several men were showing interest in her.
She said Nguyen told her that she was hurting the baby's ears with her singing.
The girlfriend said Nguyen pelted her with oranges and struck her in the face and head when they returned home.
Nguyen said he and his girlfriend argued because she sang karaoke instead of holding the baby at the party. He denied hitting the woman and said she was the one throwing the oranges.
Nguyen was taken to the Collier County Jail on a battery charge.
