Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ring girl, Brittney Palmer, is still married, even though her husband, Aaron Zalewski, choked her "within an inch of her life" several months ago, according to police records obtained by TMZ.com.

And the charges of attempted murder, spousal battery and criminal threats will more than likely be dropped if Zalewski "owns what he did and shows contrition." In fact, rather than standing trial and potentially facing time in prison, Zalewski might just have to complete an anger management course.

It sounds like an incredible deal for him, especially if you remember how the domestic incident went down:

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.

Palmer, unsurprisingly, has been absent from recent UFC events as she tends to her personal matters. She has been active on Instagram, however, showing off her painting skills and vacation destinations, among other things.

Hopefully, when all is said and done, her situation works out right. Domestic violence can be a awful, lingering ordeal that could lead to something like this.
