The victim disclosed to police that earlier in the evening Taylor accused her of cheating on him and pinned her against a wall, then threw her down onto the floor. She says Taylor told her she had “4 seconds” to tell him the truth or he was going to kick her. She pulled her knees up and he kicked her body. According to an affidavit, she went to bed a short time later, only to be pulled out of the bed by Taylor, and thrown to the floor once again. She was attempting to contact 911 when she says he took the phone from her and toss it against the bedroom wall, and slapped her in the face twice. She told police Taylor had been consuming alcohol the previous five hours.
