The man accused of throwing a McChicken sandwich at his wife reportedly broke the woman's nose during the incident, police said Thursday.
Sgt. Jason Halifax, a spokesman for the Des Moines Police department, confirmed that Marvin Tramaine Hill II, 21, did more damage than police initially thought after smashing a sandwich bun into his wife's face Tuesday afternoon. Halifax said charges against Hill will likely be amended to simple domestic assault causing bodily injury.
"It doesn't matter what instrument is used to commit the assault ... ," Halifax said. "Domestic abuse is a huge problem. The greater issue is this guy is getting angry over a sandwich."
DeLand police have arrested a man they say tried to steal more than 6 pounds of cow tongue by stuffing it down his pants.
Jason Puckett was arrested Friday in the attempted theft at the Walmart on North Woodland Boulevard.
Police said Puckett went to the cooler, put the cow tongue down his pants and tried to walk out of the store. He was stopped by loss prevention officers, who called police after Puckett ran out of the store.
