John Vincent Caruso’s arrest record is no longer clean after he was busted for washing his girlfriend’s mouth out with soap.
Caruso, 26, and 20-year-old Stephanie Madewell were arguing Tuesday at their home in Hudson, Fla., according to an arrest report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Madewell wouldn’t stop cursing, so Caruso did what moms have threatened to do to their cursing kids for decades.
He “came up behind” Madewell as she sat on the couch and “put a bottle of liquid dish soap in her mouth and squeezed the bottle,” according to police.
Madewell told cops that some soap went down her throat, and the bottle cut her lip when she tried to knock it out of Caruso’s hand.
Caruso admitted to doing it, and he was arrested on domestic battery charges.
He told one officer that his parents used to wash his mouth out with soap, and added that he “will still put soap in his mouth now out of respect for his parents.”
The arrest report notes that Caruso is Madewell’s boyfriend of five years – making him 21 and her 15 when they started dating. They have two kids together.
