Fort Lauderdale, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Ten years from now, Paul Gonzalez (left) will be complaining to his buddies how he got screwed in the divorce from his wife. A little detail that might be lacking in that conversation, however, will be what happened when Gonzalez and his wife went to divorce court.
Paul Henry Gonzalez Jr., a 28-year-old Florida man was jailed Friday after he allegedly beat his wife to a pulp in a judge's chambers during the couple's final divorce hearing.
According to police, Paul Gonzalez and Catherine Scott-Gonzalez were attending the final hearing of their divorce when Paul reportedly became upset over the issue of visitation and child support.
Investigators say Gonzalez stormed out of chambers, but returned a moment later to express his unwillingness to comply with the court's order. He reportedly left the room a second time only to return again.
That's when Gonzalez reportedly rushed over to Scott-Gonzalez, grabbed her by the neck and began pummeling her in the face with a closed fist. Scott-Gonzalez was knocked unconscious with the first blow, however Gonzalez continued pummeling her until a pool of blood formed around her, according to the report.
Deputies rushed in to dogpile Gonzales, however he reportedly threw them off. Gonzales was eventually brought into submission with several zaps of a stun gun.
Scott-Gonzalez was rushed to a hospital, where she was treated for facial fractures, a broken nose, a torn lip and numerous bruises.
Gonzales was booked into jail on charges of battery, domestic violence and resisting arrest. His bail has been set at $1 million.
