Authorities say that when a Pennsylvania woman complained that her songwriter boyfriend had never written a song about her, he choked her and hit her in the face.

Ambridge police say 29-year-old Jason Banks attacked his girlfriend June 30 after she complained and pointed out he had written songs about other women.

The Beaver County Times reports that Banks has been charged with simple assault. He did not immediately return a call for comment Tuesday to a phone number listed in his name.

Court records show Banks is free on bond awaiting a preliminary hearing July 25.
