Gainesville man accused of beating pregnant wife over $8, posting sex videos of her


    Tony Allen King/Alachua County Jail

    The Alachua County Sheriff's Office arrested a man accused of beating his pregnant wife and posting explicit videos of her online.

    Deputies charged Tony King with aggravated battery and sexual cyber-harassment in an incident that occurred on Jan. 20. He was arrested Monday.

    An arrest report says King arrived at the victim's home after his mother sent a text to the wife saying the suspect would punch her if she didn't give him his money and food stamps.

    King's wife, who was 23 weeks pregnant, refused, so he slammed her into the wall of their home and ripped her clothes as he searched her for money, a complaint affidavit says.

    Deputies say King left the home with his cell phone, their youngest child and $8.

    When asked by deputies if his visit turned violent, they say King responded, "Not really," on a recorded phone line.

    Police say a family friend of the pair received texts from King with sexually explicit photos of his wife.

    The texts also alleged that King took these photos and posted them online, the report says.

    King is currently being held at the Alachua County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
