    James Armato Beat Up Girlfriend and Meme is Now Circulating

    I have a feeling this guy is going to get the shit kicked out of him. I am hoping that through my fellow MDSers I can find more information about this situation.

    Here is a link to the news article and I included the meme (I hope!)

    Mods feel free to clean this up for me.

    STONEHAM, Mass. ?
    A Stoneham man is accused of assaulting and strangling a household or family member, according to Malden police.

    James Armato, 27, was arraigned in Malden District Court on strangulation, attempted murder, and assault and battery on a family member, assault, and resisting arrest Monday.

    The family of Gina Antonelli says she was the victim. The family claims her boyfriend, James Armato, a retired MMA fighter, severely beat her over the weekend.

    According to court documents, the couple was on a party bus in Boston celebrating Antonelli's birthday. While they were driving home, the two got into a fight and Armato began choking Antonelli while she was driving, causing her to black out and crash the car.

    Eyewitnesses saw the crash and called 911. When the Malden Fire Department arrived, they found Armato choking Antonelli.

    Armato allegedly also tried to fight a Malden firefighter during the incident.



    Her sisters set up a GoFundMe page to support Antonelli.

    ?She woke up to the horrifying reality that this MMA trained fighter was still continuously punching her and strangling her,? the GoFundMe page says.

    The District Attorney?s Office said Judge Mary Lee Johnson has ordered Armato to be held without bail.

    Here is Gina's FB, which is locked down pretty tight: https://www.facebook.com/Gina.Antonelli?ref=br_rs

    Her abuser's FB seems to have been deleted, as it is now showing up on the search, but I have a screenshot of it.

    According to the comments posted on the GoFundMe page, he's done this before. In 2013.

    Someone beat this piece of shit senseless already. Retired MMA fighter? No, retarded MMA fighter. And dickless little bitch. What a fucking pussy, beating up someone he supposedly cares about.

    Good thing she's not my sister. MMA fighter or not you'd never find his remains.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    I am not going to make too sweeping of a generalization, but 'retired' MMA fighters tend to have the brain capacity of a 12 year old boy and the emotional stability of a 5 year old boy.

    Also, the whole 2013 is confusing. Did it happen again? Or was this gofundme page made for her in lieu of her terrible hospital bills?

    Here is another article about what happened:

    http://madworldnews.com/fire-department-crash-caused/

    After an eyewitness in Massachusetts saw a crash and called 911, Malden Fire Department arrived at the scene, but what was worse than the condition of the driver was what caused the crash. First responders were left in disbelief, overwhelmed, and fighting for their own safety as they tried to rescue the innocent woman who was behind the wheel. Now, her family has a warning for others.

    A beautiful and young Gina Antonelli was enjoying an evening out on a party bus in Boston, celebrating her birthday with her boyfriend James Armato, 27, but things would take a turn when the couple headed home in the early hours of the morning. As Gina was driving home at approximately 2:30 a.m., she blacked out and crashed her car. When rescuers arrived on the scene, the cause of Gina’s condition and the crash that occurred become frighteningly evident.

    Armato, a retired Stoneham MMA fighter known professionally as “the Joker,” was choking Gina. With the young woman’s life at risk, a Malden firefighter tried to intervene, and his own life was put in danger, as the crazed Armato tried to fight him during the incident.

    According to reports, the couple had begun to argue on their ride home. Armato started choking Gina as she was driving, causing her to black out and wreck her car, but that didn’t stop Armato’s rage. He continued to strangle and beat the helpless woman. “She woke up to the horrifying reality that this MMA trained fighter was still continuously punching her and strangling her,” a GoFundMe page, set up by the victim’s sister, says.

    Armato has since been arraigned in Malden District Court on strangulation, attempted murder, assault and battery on a family member, assault, and resisting arrest. He is being held without bail for the brutal attack on the woman he was supposed to love, but would have likely killed if it weren’t for the eyewitness who brought the fire department to the scene.

    While Armato’s family and the L.A Fitness in Saugus, where he recently worked, have declined to comment, Gina’s family is speaking out with a warning for others. To show the seriousness of what happened to Gina, her cousin Jennifer posted a graphic picture from the hospital, explaining that “this is the extremely brutal reality of what an abusive relationship looks like. No one should ever have to go through this. This is the result of a sick and twisted excuse of a man. No more excuses, changing stories and hiding the truth.”




    “My cousin is so strong, beautiful, independent and full of life and he could’ve taken all of that away from our family. I’m so unbelievably thankful that she is pulling through this. Her story needs to be shared and bring awareness to these monsters. And to warn everyone of this monster: James Armato,” the post concluded.

    Gina was transported to Mass General after the attack and then Mass Eye and Ear for the injuries to her face and neck, including a fractured orbital bone and broken teeth. However, she has also finally spoken out, although she expressed humiliation over the ordeal. “What are my friends going to think of me? I’m so embarrassed that I even let this happen,” she explained.

    Perhaps the embarrassment she feels is a result of ignoring the warning signs. In 2013, Armato had an arrest for similar behavior towards a different woman, but like most victims of domestic violence, Gina says, “It was always me wanting to help him and fix him.”

    Unfortunately, you can’t fix this kind of monster. Luckily, Gina is alive to warn others, not just about Armato, but degenerates just like him. She hopes her story will help others get out before it’s too late, and she is telling those who are in situations like hers to “…Push for your life. Don’t live your life for somebody else.”

    Retired MMA Fighter Charged With Attempted Murder of Girlfriend

    A retired MMA fighter who police say choked and beat his girlfriend was arrested Sunday morning and has been charged with attempted murder.

    James Armato, 27, of Stoneham was arrested after police responded to a call at approximately 2:30 a.m. of a vehicle colliding into a building in Malden, according to police reports.

    Armato's girlfriend told police that she was driving him home in his car because he was too drunk to drive after a party. During the drive, she told police, he struck and choked her.

    His girlfriend said she then lost consciousness and crashed the vehicle into a building in the area of 599 Pleasant St., according to police reports.

    Police say they approached as Armato was choking his girlfriend up against a retaining wall. Members of the Malden Fire Department reportedly went to the woman's aid, and reports state Armato swung at and missed a firefighter.

    It took multiple officers to subdue and arrest an unruly Armato, police said. One officer reported smelling alcohol on him. Police say Armato continued to be very uncooperative and angry as he was being booked.

    Police reported that Armato had calmed down a few hours later, saying he was unable to remember what happened and expressing concern for his girlfriend.

    The woman told police Armato had strangled her before, but not as severely. Patch does not identify victims in reports of domestic violence.

    Armato was arraigned Monday at Malden District Court and charged with strangulation or suffocation, assault and battery on family/household member, attempted murder, assault, and resisting arrest. He was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled May 23. That hearing will determine whether he should continue to be held without bail.

    Records show that Armato was arrested in 2013 for alleged violence toward a different woman.

    I kinda skipped it. Looked pretty gory . But, yea, those injuries sound like a car acciden . Yeesh.

    I remember years ago my friend pushed his ex girlfriend so he could leave the house, and she was saying "I can't believe I'm a battered woman"

    Then you see some shit like this. Whoa.

    I'm trying to find a different post, but also clicking through some of the others.

    She posted on her Facebook in November - I want to say on the 17th - that he pled out and it was over. I can't believe a case like this, where there was a hx of domestic assault in other relationships and the victim had obvious and severe injuries, that it still took a year and a half for him to be held accountable. Smdh. It doesn't say what he got for time and I didn't google it, just glad to see it was an outcome the victim could live with.
