The skin underneath a Smyrna woman's neck was bleached white after her boyfriend allegedly poured the toxic liquid on her.
The dispute started just after 3:30 a.m. March 18 with a disagreement about food left on a kitchen counter, according to an incident report from the Smyrna Police Department.
The verbal dispute quickly became physical when Ervin Shakele Sutton refused to leave the residence as his girlfriend had asked, records show.
To get Sutton to comply with her request, the woman grabbed some of Sutton's clothes and threatened to bleach them. Police said while she never followed through with her threat, Sutton poured bleach on woman's jacket. The girlfriend was trying to get the bleach from Sutton, when he "shook the bleach bottle toward the victim causing bleach to get in the victim's hair, eyes and on her upper body."
The woman, records show, complained that her skin and eyes were burning and was treated at the scene by Metro Ambulance personnel.
The victim's skin "was bleached white underneath her neck," according to a Cobb County criminal warrant.
Sutton was arrested March 18 on a charge of battery-family violence. He was released from the Smyrna City Jail on March 20 after posting $7,500 bond.
