FORT MILL - A Fort Mill man has been charged with criminal domestic violence after his girlfriend said he hit her with a watermelon.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/YYJsMI ) that a 41-year-old woman told deputies that her boyfriend, 48-year-old Jimmy Poage, had been drinking on Wednesday night and thought she was cheating on him.

The woman said Poage threw a watermelon at her and hit her recently repaired hip.

Police arrived and found Poage walking away from the home. Officers said Poage told them his girlfriend had lied and that she actually had slapped him and smeared watermelon on her own clothes.

Poage was charged with criminal domestic violence and granted a $5,000 bond. It wasn't known if he had an attorney.
