A man who took revenge on his girlfriend by squirting brown sauce in her face when she refused to stop reading the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey appeared in court last week.
Raymond Hodgson, 31, appeared in Carlisle Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty to the charge of common assault when he discovered his partner of five years, Emma McCormick, had been reading the raunchy novel.
Prosecutor Adrienne Harris said the couple began arguing on June 25th after Emma began reading extracts from the fasting selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James. Miss Harris said:”Mr Hodgson thought that the book was pornographic, and that she should not read such literature. “The argument continued into the following day, with the two exchanging text messages.”
The conversation included discussion about private family issues and Mr Hodgson was left feeling angry.
Miss Harris said: “He went to her home at 7pm on June 26th and took with him a bottle of brown sauce. She answered the door and the argument continued.
“She went to close the door and he jammed his foot into the door, slapped her once in the face, and then squirted her with this bottle of sauce.”
Hodgson said that he felt Fifty Shades of Grey was a ‘distasteful’ and ‘pornographic’ book, when questioned by police.
Miss Harris said that her boyfriend “Had every intention of squirting sauce over her but regrets doing it and has realised how stupid it sounds.
Hodgson said he thought Fifty Shades of Grey was ‘wrong’ and he wanted to show his girlfriend what saucy really meant!
