March 19 (UPI) -- A Florida man was arrested on Monday and charged with aggravated battery after he allegedly punched his pregnant girlfriend in the head and threw dog poop at her.

Daniel Redding, 25, allegedly got upset when his girlfriend’s dog defecated on the floor of the car she was driving and flung feces in her direction. The mess hit the 20-year-old and got on her arms.

The Ocala man then reportedly hit the seven-months-pregnant woman in the head multiple times. She told Deputy William Blair II that she hit Redding back in self-defense, according to a Marion County Sheriff's Office report.

When Redding began grabbing at the steering wheel, she stopped the car in the middle of the road. Redding hopped out but law enforcement officials were able to track him down at the Westwood Mobile Home Park.

Deputies arrested Redding and took him to the Marion County Jail.

The woman declined to go the hospital, but authorities did alert the Department of Children and Families about the incident.
