OCALA, Fla. – A man was arrested after he slapped his girlfriend outside an Ocala Walmart, police said.

A Walmart employee was on his break when he saw Isaac Caspersen, 38, harassing a woman outside the store, according to the report. 

The witness said he watched Caspersen yell and scream profanities at the woman, according to the report. Then, he told deputies, Caspersen hit the female in the head with an open fist and she began to cry.

The deputy said that, when he arrived at the scene, the couple was still fighting and Caspersen was yelling very loudly at the woman, according to the report.
