Think you’ve got a gripe with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop”? A woman in Longmort, Colorado took her pains with the hit Billboard single to heart as she was arrested over the weekend for choking her boyfriend for repeatedly singing the song.

samantha-malson-thrift-shopSamantha Malson, 23 was charged with assault after choking out her boyfriend, 26-year old Lars Hansen. Hansen was celebrating his birthday when he and Malson started arguing after getting drunk. Malson claims after the two got into it over Hansen alleging she drank all the alcohol in their shared apartment, she left for a bit, returning to find Hansen repeatedly singing “Thrift Shop” to his hearts content. She asked him to stop singing over 25 times before turning into Jon “Bones” Jones and proceeding to choke him out.

Malson is free on bond but hopefully making certain she avoids the radio before raging out on the next person she sees singing the track. Since it hit #1 on Billboard three months ago, “Thrift Shop” has set records for being the longest running #1 Hip-Hop/Rap single to occupy the top spot. She might want to avoid a television on Sunday night too as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will no doubt be performing their hit track at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
