TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A man accused of repeatedly hitting his pregnant girlfriend now faces several criminal charges.
18-year-old Nicholas Herget of Lafayette is charged with criminal recklessness and several counts of battery.
According to court documents, Herget's girlfriend told police that she had bruises all over her body because of Herget. She told officers last month, Herget pushed her onto the kitchen floor, got on top of her, pulled out a kitchen knife, and placed the tip of the blade against her throat.
That's when he allegedly told her, "You're lucky that I don't kill you."
Detectives said Herget admitted to them he hit his girlfriend and blamed his aggressive behavior on her continually nagging and annoying him.
