FEBRUARY 21--A Florida man punched his girlfriend and struck her with a “plastic dildo” when she criticized his performance as they were having sex, police allege.
According to an arrest affidavit, Eric Pritsch, 42, and Carol Favuzza, 58, tangled earlier this month at their trailer home in Stuart.
While the couple was having sex, Favuzza told cops, she told Pritsch, “You’re not a man, you’re a mouse.” This comment, investigators noted, was “in reference to his apparent inability to perform.”
After that withering appraisal, Pritsch (seen above) allegedly punched Favuzza in the face and “struck her in the back several times with a plastic dildo and some type of cord.” Pritsch and Favuzza both appeared drunk, police reported.
While interviewing Favuzza, a cop observed swelling to her face and jaw. She was later transported to a local hospital for treatment. Pritsch, who denied striking Favuzza, was brought to the same hospital due to his “high level of intoxication.”
Pritsch was subsequently booked into the county jail on a misdemeanor battery charge. He is free on $2500 bond in advance of a March 9 court hearing.
Pritsch and Favuzza (pictured at left) both have lengthy rap sheets and, according to court records, have previously been accused of battering each other.
As for the recovery of the weapon reportedly wielded during the February 7 incident, a patrolman reported, “We did not locate the dildo allegedly used by Pritsch to strike Favuzza.” (1 page)
