Samuel Dalembert is facing battery charges after authorities say he hit his girlfriend and her cousin.
A Boca Raton police report says police responded to Dalembert’s home Sunday evening after a 911 hang-up.
Dalembert reportedly became upset when he found out his girlfriend was leaving for Orlando with their two children.
The cousin told police Dalembert pushed the girlfriend down and then choked the cousin when he tried to intervene. Dalembert was arrested on two counts of battery and released from jail.
