DADE CITY -- A 19-year-old man was arrested Thursday evening after head-butting a pregnant woman, Pasco County sheriff's deputies said.

Jamar Rasheem Hicks of 14624 State St. in Dade City was charged with aggravated battery in the incident.

Deputies said Hicks was in an argument with the woman, whom they declined to identify, when he struck her nose with his forehead. The woman, who is two months pregnant, got a bloody nose from the blow.

Hicks also told her, "You better be lucky you're pregnant," the report stated.

Hicks was taken to county jail in Land O'Lakes, where he remained Friday in lieu of $5,000 bail.
