Picture of Mitt Romney on woman's computer sends boyfriend into jealous rage

A jealous boyfriend in Tennessee did not recognize a picture of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney when he saw it on his girlfriend's Facebook page. He mistook him for a lover.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports:

CLINTON — He suspected his live-in girlfriend of planning an affair, and when he saw a picture of a man he didn't recognize on her Facebook page, it set him off, according to reports.

Lowell Turpin "angrily demanded to know who the male was," an Anderson County Sheriff's Department incident report states.

The answer, his girlfriend told him: presidential contender Mitt Romney.

Upset at the woman's "attempting to communicate with friends through her Facebook account," Turpin jerked her laptop computer from her grasp, smashed the machine into a wall, and then hit her in the face with his fist, according to reports.

The man is currently in jail and charged with domestic assault, the Sentinel reported.
