Woman Arrested For Assaulting Boyfriend For Singing 'Thrift Shop'
Malson, a 23-year-old Colorado woman, was arrested late Saturday (April 6) after allegedly pushing and choking her boyfriend, 26-year-old Lars Hansen, after he would not stop singing the song, currently the No. 1 single in the United States.
In a phone call to the Longmont, Colorado, Police Department, Radio.com verified that Malson assaulted Hansen after he wouldn't stop singing the song. She "pushed and eventually choked" her boyfriend, and when asked by police to confirm her story, she "admitted to officers" that she assaulted him.
According to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, Malson and Hansen had been drinking (it was his birthday), and had been fighting over him apparently drinking all the alcohol in the house, or so Malson told cops. Though she asked him "25 times" to stop singing "Thrift Shop," Hansen apparently would not quit, prompting Malson to take matters into her own hands — literally. more on this story
