Deputies: Argument over good-night kiss lands Florida man in jail

- Police have arrested a Florida man they say pushed his girlfriend and cut her with glass after she declined to kiss him goodnight.

Records show 59-year-old Rudolph Battaglia was in the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday following his Aug. 19 arrest on charges of battery and aggravated battery.

The Palm Beach Post reports the couple argued after he asked his 54-year-old girlfriend for a goodnight kiss, and she said she'd already kissed him.

The arrest report says Battaglia shoved her onto the bed, broke a crystal decoration and held up a piece of glass while threatening her. Deputies say the woman was cut on her left thumb when he slammed the glass on a table.

Jail records don't list a lawyer for Battaglia.
