A Florida Army Ranger used a small, portable camera to catch his estranged wife striking him in the groin during an argument.
Tampa’s Channel 10 News reported that the Pinellas County man — identified only as “Michael” for the story — is in the process of getting divorced.
“This is just one of many instances where I’ve had to use the camera to either prove her guilt or prove my innocence and that’s the only reason I am carrying it,” he said to Channel 10.
In recent encounters, he said, his wife — 37-year-old Corinne Novak — has become physically violent. Last Thursday, when the two met to exchange custody of their twin 2-year-old sons, Novak struck him when the camera was recording.
Michael was wearing the camera on a belt around his waist when the attack occurred. He was tending to one of the twins’ car seats when the video showed Novak’s hand striking her husband’s testicles.
“Ow, what the…?” he said.
Novak can be seen from the neck down wearing running shoes and black shorts.
“Call the police,” she responded. “I’m gonna tell them that you just assaulted me.”
“I started wearing the camera to maintain and prove my innocence,” Michael told Channel 10.
After viewing the video, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Novak and charged her with domestic battery.

Watch Anderson Cooper use the long-form of ‘BS’ while shutting down Rod Blagojevich on CNN
MSNBC anchor Anderson Cooper was visibly angered by claims made by former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich during a Friday evening CNN interview.
Blogojevich was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for corruption while in office that included attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacancy created when Barack Obama was elected president. His sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.
Cooper lectured Blogojevich for getting sued while governor over a backlog of 3,000 clemency cases.
The CNN anchor described it as "a little ironic and frankly a little sad and pathetic and hypocritical."
Devin Nunes is livid at report he helped Trump’s White House: ‘Who the hell is leaking this?’
The ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee is suing Washington, DC's hometown newspaper.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced that he was suing The Washington Post during a Friday appearance on Fox News.
“A senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers last week that Russia wants to see President Trump reelected, viewing his administration as more favorable to the Kremlin’s interests, according to people who were briefed on the comments,” The Washington Post reported Thursday. “Trump learned about Pierson’s remarks from Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter.”

"Are we going to have public hearings on this sooner rather than later?" Todd asked.
"I'll let the chairman address that," Swalwell replied. "But our staff is working through the weekend to make sure that our elections are free from Russian interference."
