Man Battered Wife with Package of Oreo Cookies

A man in Florida is facing a felony charge for allegedly knocking down his 75-year-old wife by pelting her with a package of Oreo cookies during an argument about the coffee maker.
On the morning of November 18, a 70-year-old man and his wife, 75, were in their home in Sorrento, Florida, when an argument broke out between the couple. The coffee machine did not have any water in it, and the man allegedly began to yell at his wife. During the verbal battle, the man allegedly picked up a package of Oreo cookies and threw it. The package reportedly struck his wife in the chest, and she fell on the ground.
The following morning, the woman told her daughter about the incident, and her daughter told her to call the police since the man has reportedly been violent before. The woman went to her daughter’s house and notified the authorities.
Deputies from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office spoke to the woman, and she said after she was hit with the Oreos and fell, her husband grabbed her by the throat. The deputy noted in the police report that they did not see any markings on her neck. The woman informed the deputies that her husband was at their home.
According to reports, when deputies talked to her husband, the man said he helped his wife get up when she fell, and that he did not touch her neck. He reportedly admitted to throwing the package of cookies at her.
The man was taken into custody and booked into the Lake Couty Jail. He is facing preliminary charges of third-degree felony domestic battery on a person 65 years of age or older. He was released the following day after posting a $2000 bond.
