Man Arrested for Throwing McChicken Sandwich at His Pregnant Wife
A Des Moines, Iowa resident was arrested on Tuesday, December 2 for “using a McDonald’s McChicken sandwich as a weapon against his pregnant wife,” according to The Des Moines Register.
Marvin Tramaine Hill reportedly told police that his wife woke him up “around 1 p.m. with a McChicken in hand” and that he became upset with her and threw the sandwich at her “because he doesn’t like them.”
When police arrived at the couple’s home, Hill’s wife had mayonnaise on her shirt and face, and told the officers that her husband had “forcefully smashed the bun into her face,” resulting in a swollen nose.
A report indicated that Hill, who had accused his wife of being the aggressor, was believed to have been attempting to lure his wife into knocking his phone out of his hands, on which he was recording part of their argument. Hill was subsequently arrested and his weapons permit was confiscated.
