According to local media reports, Lucic returned home intoxicated after a night out. Upon being unable to locate his phone, he became enraged and accused his wife of hiding it. When Brittany denied the allegations and attempted to leave, Lucic grabbed her hair and forcefully pulled her back, declaring, "You're not going anywhere." Brittany managed to escape and left the apartment, immediately contacting the police.

She initially claimed that Lucic had attempted to strangle her, but later retracted the statement. However, police officers observed visible redness on her neck, raising concerns about the nature of the altercation. Lucic was subsequently arrested and charged with domestic violence.

During his arraignment, he pleaded not guilty, while maintaining to police officers that "nothing happened."
