Palmer’s husband arrested for attempted murder

According to a report from TMZ, UFC Octagon Girl Brittney Palmer’s husband has been arrested for attempting to murder her. She was married to finance guru Aaron Zalewski in June of 2014. He is also facing charges of spousal battery and criminal threats stemming from an incident on June 11.
Documents obtained by TMZ describe the struggle like this:
LAPD says things got physical when they wrestled for her phone — Zalewski noticed she was recording the argument, and during the struggle he threw Palmer, and she hit her head on a bedpost.
Brittney told cops Zalewski yelled, “Pack your f**king bags and go!” — but wouldn’t let her leave. She says he threw her down again — pinning her face down on a mattress, with his knee in her back. She says she struggled to breathe for 2 minutes while he held her down.
When Palmer finally escaped at around 1:25 a.m. on June 12, she called 9-1-1 and Zalewski was arrested when police arrived. He was released on $1 million bond the next day.
We’ll see if Brittney makes it to Vegas for UFC 189 this weekend. Until then, enjoy a few of her photos below…
