Noces Joseph LaFont Jr., or “Trapper Joe” as he is known on the History Channel series “Swamp People,” was arrested last week at a Walt Disney World hotel on charges of domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Orange County Sheriff’s deputies saw LaFont violently shaking and then punching the woman in the chest with a closed fist. She told authorities that LaFont also tried to burn her with a cigarette.
Officers believe both were intoxicated at the time of the altercation. LaFont denies hitting or attempting to burn her with a cigarette. His girlfriend did not require medical attention and decided not to press charges.
