“Over the weekend, I saw reports of not one but two incidents where people were charged criminally for food attacks. On Friday, The Associated Press reported that a Canadian couple both face domestic assault charges after attacking each other with chips and dip after fighting over the last beer. When the police arrived, “they found both people covered in chips and dip.”
Then, on Saturday, a Louisiana man celebrating his birthday was arrested for “simple battery of the infirmed” after he smashed a cookie cake over the head of his father. Just as with the chips and dip and the burrito incidents, the victim was “covered in the cookie cake” when the sheriff’s deputy arrived on the scene.” from Law.com Legal Blog Watch.
