Florida man, David Benes, jailed after imprisoning 80-year-old girlfriend to exorcise ‘the devil’ out

Details have emerged surrounding a bizarre arrested in Holiday, Florida where a man held his girlfriend against her will to perform an exorcism.

54-year-old David Edward Benes was arrested after the physical altercation, CBS Tampa reported.

The woman told police her boyfriend was trying to “exorcise her and get the devil out of her” against her will. To ensure that she remained in their shared home, Benes allegedly took the batteries out of all phones, disarmed the garage door opener and snatched her car keys, among other measures, to prevent any escape plans.

Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies found injuries to both her arms when they arrived on the scene.

The report states that Benes was too drunk to recall what happened, but according to the Tampa Bay Times, he said his girlfriend started the fight “because she is crazy.”

This is not the first time Benes has been in trouble with the law. He was charged with domestic violence last month and also in April 2012
