A 22-year-old Lincoln man accused of waterboarding his girlfriend has been charged with false imprisonment, domestic assault and making terroristic threats.

Police say the 22-year-old woman told officers that Trevor Scott Case confronted her Saturday morning when she got home from work and accused her of being with someone else.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the woman told police Case bound her wrists, tied her to a couch and stuffed socks in her mouth. She said he then put a shirt over her head and poured water over it, creating the sensation of drowning.

Police say the woman was able to twist free. The report says her wrists were bruised and swollen.

A message left Tuesday with Case’s public defender was not immediately returned.
