The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Where's The Beef?

In jail it would seem.

There is just something off with this whole story.  And let me say, that I don't even blame the wife for her part in this.  Though I do have some choice words for what she did.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. —  A 25-year-old Port St. Lucie man was arrested for allegedly rubbing a hamburger on his wife's face during an argument.

Police say Daniel Boss and his wife got into it late Thursday night and started calling each other names. At some point, the woman apparently poured soda on Boss' hamburger, causing him to grab the sandwich, rub it in her face and start throwing food.

Boss left, but his wife went to the police station to report the incident. Officers arrested him three hours later on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.

Ok, please tell me where in the code of law that a food fight is a domestic battery offense?  Please tell me how being rubbed, and I will even grant that it could have been aggressive rubbing (shame on you!), with meat can get a cop to arrest the rubber?  ( shame on you again)

Hey Noz, here's another good discussion starter.  Wouldn't there have to be evidence of battery before a person can be arrested as the batterer?

Can you really get a cop to arrest someone for DOMESTIC BATTERY by saying that that someone rubbed some hamburger on you?  What evidence is there?  Shouldn't there be some form of intent to do bodily harm for the charge of battery?  How can you do harm with a soda-soaked hamburger?

Or, is this a case of over-eager cops afraid of the women PC crowd who would cry foul if they didn't automatically take the women's side?  Despite the absence of necessary facts?
