In a bizarre report, a 32-year-old Portland, Oregon man has been arrested for allegedly choking his girlfriend with his dreadlocks.

Caleb Grotberg was arrested on Monday after an argument with his girlfriend escalated into a violent and twisted incident, during which Grotberg allegedly used his dreadlocks to choke her.


The woman was hospitalized with numerous non-life-threatening injuries, according to authorities.

While specific details have not emerged of the incident, the unidentified woman claims that Grotberg used his long, twisted dreadlocks to choke her.

Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson says the woman was in the hospital on Monday for treatment for her injuries. 

Grotberg has been charged with several domestic violence felony crimes, including strangulation, fourth-degree assault and second-degree kidnapping. 


He is due in court on Tuesday.
