Woman Arrested For Choking Boyfriend On His Birthday Over Macklemore Lyrics

(AllHipHop News) They say you are what you listen to but an amendment to that adage could be: you also could become a maniac over music. A Colorado couple engaged in domestic violence when 24 year old Samantha Malson choked her 26 year old boyfriend Lars Hansen after Hansen would not stop rapping the lyrics to Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”.

According to a Longmont Police Department report, Malson accused Hansen of drinking all of the alcohol in the house before she choked him after Hansen refused to stop singing the lyrics to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop”. She admitted “I grabbed him around the throat” after Hansen refused to stop, because “He just annoyed me.”

Malson was charged with domestic violence, ordered to pay a $212.50 fee, an 18-month probation program and was sentenced to 60 days in jail.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ hit single “Thrift Shop” was the third most streamed song on Spotify in 2013 and is nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
