Domestic spats can happen to even the strongest of couples, and sometimes they arise over seemingly trivial matters. For the most part, these types of rows get resolved when cooler heads prevail. As the Daily Mail reports, cooler heads did not prevail for this 19-year-old man in Scotland, and he viciously beat his 18-year-old girlfriend for a completely nonsensical reason.

James McCourt seemingly lost his mind and flew into a fit of rage. He beat the daylights out of his girlfriend, Kelsie Skillen, and kept her as a prisoner in her own home for several hours. Things apparently went awry when the couple returned home for the evening, and James realized he didn’t have cigarettes. He blamed Kelsie for that, and then he proceeded to lose it.

“Eventually I realized the more I kept screaming the more he retaliated and attacked me, eventually I got to the point I stopped and he wasn’t getting the reaction he wanted,” Skillen explained in court.

She relayed the story of the vicious assault that lasted for several hours, and how she was finally able to get a hold of her mother when McCourt went to the restroom. McCourt has been sentenced to 21 months behind bars for the brutal attack.
