South Carolina Republican state Rep. Chris Corley was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly beating a woman who reportedly caught him “cheating.”

Deputies from the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office were called to Corley’s home on Monday where a woman accused him of hitting her in the face and threatening to kill her children, the Aiken Standard reported.

According to the arrest warrant, the woman said that Corley was “caught cheating.”

She told deputies that Corley beat her with a closed fist until he noticed blood coming from her head and heard her children screaming. She said that Corley retrieved a handgun from his car, and then came back into the home and pointed it at her.

Corley threatened to kill himself and then went into the bedroom, the report stated.

The state representative insisted to police that the two had gotten into a verbal disagreement when she accused him of cheating. He said that he was forced to push her because she attempted to strike him with a closed fist.

But records released in federal court this week indicate that contribution came from an entirely different company," adding that the discrepancy was pointed out by the  Campaign Legal Center which labeled it a violation of federal campaign-finance laws.

The Trump White House suffered a stinging defeat on Thursday when a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers voted to block sales of American arms to Saudi Arabia.

The vote in favor of blocking the arms sales received affirmative votes from all Senate Democrats, as well as votes from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Todd Young (R-IN).

Graham, who is usually one of President Donald Trump's staunchest allies, said he voted for the bill because he believed the United States could not ignore the behavior of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, as well as the Saudi government's killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
