A political argument between a Florida couple escalated to the point of requiring police to respond, the Smoking Gun reported on Wednesday.

According to investigators in Bradenton, 78-year-old Lawrence Littman was charged with battery on a person over 65 for allegedly attacking his wife, 73-year-old Elvia Littman on July 27.

The alleged victim told investigators that her husband is supporting Republican Donald Trump in the presidential election, while she planned to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The suspect’s booking document stated that he called his wife “many derogatory names then grabbed her wrist and threw her on a chair in the bedroom.”

She then tried to get away, police said, but her husband “followed her, grabbed her by the arm again and slung her to the ground.”

Lawrence Littman told police that his wife tried to slap him, forcing him to shove her away and causing her to fall.

The suspect pleaded not guilty to the charge against him. He was released on $500 bond while being ordered not to have any contact with his wife.
