Man With 'Family Over Everything' Tattoo Assaulted Pregnant Girlfriend, Police Say

Police say that Roldan Aleman at one point picked his pregnant girlfriend off the ground and "dropped" her. 

In a bit of unfortunate irony, a Florida man who has the phrase “Family Over Everything” tattooed on his chest was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly beating up his pregnant girlfriend, police say.

Roldan Aleman was taken into custody early in the day and charged with aggregated battery of a pregnant female, resisting an officer with violence, battery of a law enforcement officer, offense against a police dog, and possession of marijuana, according to arrest records.

Police were first called to the home of the 22-year-old after he and his girlfriend argued over his suspicion she was “talking to another male,” an arrest affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun states.

Aleman is alleged to have at one point picked his pregnant partner up and “dropped” her on the ground, according to the affidavit. The woman was four months pregnant with Aleman’s child at the time of the attack.

Police indicated that Aleman showed signs of being under the influence of drugs at the time of his arrest.

Reports on Aleman's arrest also took note of his large chest-wide tattoo that reads “Family Over Everything.” 

When police arrived at the scene, Aleman, a Pinellas, Florida resident, is alleged to have fought with them and resisted arrest. Aleman’s arrest report alleges he assaulted a police dog and officer during the scuffle, and that he had marijuana on his person at the time.

Aleman is being held in Pinellas County Jail on $20,300 bond, according to The Smoking Gun.

This is the 11th time that Aleman has been booked into the same jail. According to court records, Aleman was charged in 2015 with aggravated battery of a pregnant female.

Aleman was charged again in 2016 for battery of a person older than 65 years of age, according to court records. He also counts several charges for trespassing and possession of marijuana.
