LINCOLN, Neb. (CBS/AP) Trevor Scott Case, a 22-year-old Nebraska man, has been charged with false imprisonment, domestic assault and making terrorist threats after allegedly waterboarding his girlfriend.

Police in Lincoln say the 22-year-old woman told officers that Case confronted her Saturday morning when she got home from work and accused her of cheating on him with another man.

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.

"He poured a pitcher of water on her head, and she started freaking out and thought she wasn't able to breathe," according to the report.

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

According to the newspaper, Trevor Scott Case denied the accusation to police.
