Alanis Morissette Attack

OCTOBER 17--A Florida man admitted to cops that he assaulted his live-in boyfriend because the victim only listened to music by Alanis Morissette.

"That's all the mother fucker listens to," Allen Casey, 24, told sheriff's deputies Sunday night in the Jacksonville home he shares with Todd Fletcher, 33.

Fletcher told investigators that Casey hit him in the face with a plate. Bleeding from a large cut, Fletcher "stated that he was listening to Alanis Morissette and his boyfriend didn't like it, so the suspect hit the victim in the face," according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report.

When deputies questioned Casey, he complained about Fletcher's taste in music and reportedly admitted, "I hit him in the face."

Casey, seen in the above mug shot, was arrested for felony domestic battery and booked into the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond.

The sheriff's report notes that the men are involved in a "homosexual relationship" and both were using "amphetamines/methamphetamines." (2 pages)
