A woman came forward to The North Carolina Beat and said that a man she knew and had been having sexual relations with violently assaulted her and her friend on New Year’s Day in a Waffle House in Dallas, Texas.
The video we will show below is disturbing, and according to the woman, warrants have been issued for the man.
On January 1, 2023, New Year’s Day, around 3-4 am, Arianna Nesmith said she and her female friend named Jalin was dining at a Dallas Waffle House, and on their way to cash out, she saw a man she had been dealing with sitting at the table with another woman.
“This is a man I had been in dealings with, but my intentions were to just walk over to the table and speak to him after I paid for my food,” Arianna said.
Arianna said she went back to her table and told her friend Jalin that she was going to go say ‘Hi’ to her friend, the guy she had dealings with. Arianna said she walked over to the table and spoke to the guy, and they had a lengthy conversation. She said that the guy’s girlfriend also joined in the conversation, and they all had a conversation.
“We talked about what we did for New Year’s, and I introduced myself to the woman that he was with, and we talked for a little bit,” Ariann said.
During their conversation, Arianna said the woman seemed to become uncomfortable. Finally, Arianna said the woman turned to her boyfriend and asked him if he knew her.
“Do you know her?” Arianna said the woman asked her boyfriend.
Arianna said the woman asked the man question after they had just had a full-blown conversation. She said the man told his girlfriend that he knew Arianna and that he had known her for nearly four years. Arianna said the woman started looking even more uncomfortable.
Looking on at the table with Arianna, the guy she had dealings with, and his girlfriend, Arianna’s friend Jalin comes over to join them.
“My friend came over and introduced herself to them,” Arianna said.
Arianna said the woman asked her ‘what’s going on? to which Arianna said her friend Jalin asked, “Are you his girlfriend?” and that the woman said, “yes.”
“After she told us that she was his girlfriend, my best friend asked how long they had been together,” Arianna said.
The woman told them that she and the man had been together for one year.
“I looked at him, and she looked at me, and she was asking me what was going on,” Arianna said. “I just told them this wasn’t my business at this point, and I told her that I think she should talk to her man.”
Arianna said the man pushed his girlfriend out of the booth and walked towards her best friend in her face. She said the man started calling them bitches, telling them they were drunk and on drugs. As the man’s girlfriend is trying to go around him to talk to Arianna to further discuss what is going on, Jalin is trying to calm the guy down, telling him to calm down because he’s starting to get angry.
“My friend was just telling him to calm down and to get his hands off her,” Arianna said. “He then pushes her back, and she swats his hand, and he walks her down to the ground while choking her.”
The video shows the man, who has been identified as 34-year-old Ulysses Deaudra Benton choking Jalin with one of his hands, taking her to the ground, and then punching her in the face. After Benton takes Jalin, who is in all black, to the ground, you will see from another video that Arianna, who is in the white, tries to get Benton off her friend by hitting him in the back. Once Arianna hits Benton in the back, he turns around and punches her in the face, knocking her unconscious. After Benton knocks Arianna unconscious, he turns back around again and assaults Jalin before being pushed off her by bystanders.
The video is very disturbing to watch.

“He scratched up both of our bodies,” Arianna said.
When we asked Arianna if Benton had still communicated with her, she said they had still been in communication and had just seen each other in December before New Year’s.
Arianna said that she and Benton were not together but dating.
“We were dating and would have sex when we saw each other,” Arianna said.
Benton admitted to The North Carolina Beat that he knew Arianna but never mentioned anything about them dating. He said he assaulted both women because he was defending himself and his lady and didn’t know if Arianna or Jalin had weapons or who they were with that could have harmed him.
“They approached me aggressively, and I defended me and everyone who was with me,” Benton said. “I asked them to move, and they didn’t want to move, and the bigger girl bucked up at me, talking crazy to me, and tried to stop us from leaving, so I grabbed her and got her out my way.”
Arianna said she did not go to the table aggressively, and neither did her friend Jalin when she walked over and introduced herself to everyone.
“We literally had a full-blown conversation. All of us did,” Arianna said.
Arianna said that she and her friend did criminal file charges against Benton, but he has not yet been arrested.
“He is an extremely violent man and he is a reoccurring abuser,” Arianna said. “I spoke to multiple women and he does this to a lot of women.”
