A Chandler man drugged his girlfriend and branded his initials into her vagina while she was passed out, police say.
Christopher Lynn Jackson, the owner of a landscaping business called Lawn Tamers, "bragged" to his now-ex-girlfriend about doing the same thing to other girlfriends in the past, according to court documents obtained by New Times.
Although the incident occurred in May, she just recently reported it to police. An examination showed that the letters "C" and "J" were still "clearly" branded to her vagina, according to court documents.
The woman told police the two of them went to a baseball game together, and after the game, Jackson wanted to go dancing. The woman told Jackson she was too tired to do that. He "offered her a pill to energize her," according to court documents.
Not feeling energized after taking the pill, Jackson gave her two more. The woman passed out shortly after taking the other two pills, according to court documents.
She woke up in Jackson's bed in severe pain, and discovered that Jackson had branded her. She said she saw Jackson with the branding equipment and butane torch, according to the documents.
The woman told police that Jackson "bragged" to her that he'd done that to other girlfriends in the past and explained to her that he wanted to do the same thing to her because "her vagina was his," court documents state.
Although Jackson did not speak to police after being arrested, police did serve a search warrant and recovered the branding tools and butane torch.
Jackson, 49, was booked into jail on a charge of aggravated assault with serious physical injury.
