PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (Gray News) - Byron Christianoudis just wanted to take a shower. He ended up in the Land O Lakes Jail after a fight with his elderly roommate.
Deputies arrested the 48-year-old man Tuesday for battery on a person over 65, the Miami Herald reported.
Christianoudis rents space from his 70-year-old roommate, which technically makes it a landlord-tenant relationship.
When the roommate told Christianoudis he takes too many showers, Christianoudis put him in a headlock and scratched his face so severely, it left lacerations, deputies said.
The suspect reportedly confessed to putting his roommate in a headlock, but claimed he only did so because he felt threatened.
