Police say Myspace tiff led to biting
FRAMINGHAM -- A Framingham man angry that his ex-girlfriend removed him as a friend from her Myspace.com Web page, repeatedly bit, punched and then choked her on the weekend, police said.
Michael Magrath, 19, told police he did not punch the woman Saturday, but said he bit her and put his hands on her throat, but it was all in jest, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.
He also did not deny he destroyed her laptop computer, worth more than $2,000, Shastany said.
"The victim had gone to see her ex-boyfriend and they were looking at Myspace, when he discovered she had removed him from her Myspace Web page," said Shastany. "He became very angry and he bit her on the arm, threw her on the bed, punched her in the face and began to choke her."
Myspace.com is a social networking Web site. People can invite "friends" to their page, which allows them to send messages back and forth.
The victim, who police did not name, said Magrath was finally pulled off the girl by his roommate, Shastany said.
Still angry, Magrath punched his ex-girlfriend’s laptop computer, smashing the screen portion of the computer.
The woman left and went straight to the police station, where she made her report. Officers went to the apartment and arrested Magrath.
"He said they were joking around about the Myspace page," said Shastany. "He said he bit her on the arm and put his hands around her neck, but it was a joke. He said he punched the computer, but he never hit her."
Magrath of 330 Hollis St. was charged with assault and battery and the malicious destruction of property worth more than $250.
Magrath was released without bail after his Framingham District Court arraignment yesterday. He is due back in court on Nov. 29 for a pretrial conference
