AKRON, OH (WOIO) - With a boyfriend like this, it's better off to be single.

Akron Police tell 19 Action News Richard A. Simmons and his girlfriend were fighting over a cell phone while inside Simmons' truck.

During the argument, Simmons pulled out a gun. When Simmons stopped the truck to pick up his cell phone, the girlfriend jumped out. That's when the 38-year-old threw the truck into  reverse and hit her.

Simmons is now charged with domestic violence, aggravated menacing and felonious assault.
