DUNEDIN, Fla. — A Florida man used a GoPro strapped to his belt to catch his estranged wife’s abuse of him on video — and it was enough to put her in jail.
WTSP reports that the Army ranger, who is being identified only as Michael, is in the middle of a divorce and custody battle with the woman, Corinne Novak, 37. They have twin two-year-olds.
Michael has been tying the GoPro to his belt using a parachute cord to record what happens between he and Corinne. Footage caught last week appears to show Novak grab Michael’s genitals as he reached into the car to unbuckle one of his sons.
Novak is then heard threatening to say Michael had assaulted her if he called police. But the video landed Novak in jail, WTSP reports, for domestic battery.
“This is just one of many instances where I’ve had to use the camera to either prove her guilt or prove my innocence and that’s the only reason I am carrying it,” Michael told WTSP. “We have court coming up so hopefully it goes to show a little bit of validity to what I’ve been doing and what I’ve been saying and disapproving what she’s been saying. It seems to be overlooked when the man is a victim of domestic violence.”
