— A Rock Hill man is accused of domestic violence after police say he threw a biscuit at his girlfriend before he choked her, held a screwdriver at her neck and threatened to kill her on Sunday.

Police at about 9:30 p.m. were called to a Frank Street home and spoke with a woman, 23, who said she was in the kitchen cooking dinner for her live-in boyfriend of one year when they began arguing about their relationship, according to a Rock Hill police report. That’s when she said her boyfriend, Jaquavous McFadden, 21, grabbed a biscuit and threw it at her face.

McFadden and the woman continued to argue until she ran into the front bedroom, the report states. McFadden followed and pushed her on the bed, where he allegedly choked her.

Police could not find any marks on the woman’s neck, although she said she ran into another room and tried to call police. McFadden grabbed a screwdriver, she claims, held it to her neck and said, “If you call the police, I’ll kill you,” according to the report. McFadden then left the house while the woman called authorities.

A witness, who refused to give a written statement, confirmed most of the woman’s story, adding that he didn’t see the choking incident, the report states. Police found McFadden outside the house, arrested him and charged him with criminal domestic violence.

He was given a $2,105 bond in municipal court before he was booked at the York County Detention Center.
