[Mug Shot Photo] 23-Year-Old Woman Arrested After Choking Her Boyfriend For Singing Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”

I’m not mad at you, boo. Catch me while I’m hungry or PMSing or something? Someone could definitely get choked for singing this around me, LOL! One too many drinks for Colorado native Samantha Malson, and the 23-year-old found herself behind bars for choking out her 26-year-old boyfriend Lars Hansen for singing the catchy tune…on his birthday, no less. It wasn’t just as simple as that, though. Samantha told the cops that the couple had been arguing for hours because Lars had drank all of the liquor in the apartment that they shared. After she left to blow off some steam, she returned to find him repeatedly singing “Thrift Shop” over and over, and allegedly asked him stop singing at least 25 times. At that point, it was time to put the paws on him. She is currently out on bond, but no word on their status as a couple. I think it’s safe to say, though, that “Thrift Shop” won’t be making any of her iTunes playlists for some time.
