UFC Octagon girl Brittney Palmer‘s husband allegedly tossed her around like a rag doll and choked her so brutally — he’s been rung up for attempted murder … TMZ Sports has learned.
The massive fight went down at the couple’s L.A. home on the evening of June 11 … when Brittney and Aaron Zalewski got into an argument. He had previously overheard a casting agent call her “babe” over the phone, and allegedly went ballistic.
In docs obtained by TMZ Sports … LAPD says things got physical when they wrestled for her phone — Zalewski noticed she was recording the argument, and during the struggle he threw Palmer, and she hit her head on a bedpost.
Brittney told cops Zalewski yelled, “Pack your f**king bags and go!” — but wouldn’t let her leave. She says he threw her down again — pinning her face down on a mattress, with his knee in her back. She says she struggled to breathe for 2 minutes while he held her down.
And there’s this — Brittney says during the fight Zalewski scratched his own arms and yelled … “Why are you making me do this? I just wanted you to love me.”
When Brittney finally escaped the house, she called police … around 1:25 AM on June 12. Cops arrived and busted Zalewski for attempted murder, spousal battery, and criminal threats.
He was released on $1 million bail the next day. The case is now with the L.A. County District Attorney.
