A Florida man found himself in cuffs after allegedly scratching his crotch and causing a fight with his girlfriend.  

The Manatee County Sheriff said the 30-year-old man was on the couch having himself a good scratch while his girlfriend was trying to eat.

She allegedly got angry about his "disgusting" behavior and socked him in the eye, so he got into an altercation with her and eventually pushed her out the door while trying to defend himself.

In the scuffle the girlfriend reportedly suffered a scratch on her ankle which was the proof deputies needed to arrest him for misdemeanor battery.
