Man Hit Roommate in Head with Pizza Dough

A Florida man was arrested after allegedly striking his roommate in the head with a piece of raw pizza dough because he reportedly thought he was intentionally trying to irritate him.

On the evening of April 11, a 32-year-old man was at the St. Petersburg residence where he lives with his 62-year-old roommate. According to reports, he was in the kitchen working on making a homemade pizza and heard voices in his head that were instructing him about how to prepare the pie.

In the background, his roommate was reportedly making a coughing sound. The man became agitated by the noise and reportedly angrily threw some of the dough on the floor. Afterward, he allegedly picked it up and threw it toward his roommate. The flying unbaked crust reportedly hit the man in the head.

The authorities were notified, and officers with the St. Petersburg Police Department went to the residence to investigate the reported domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they spoke to the alleged victim, and he said he was at the table in the dining room with his back turned when he felt the dough hit his head. When they inspected it, the police reported that they did not see any marks that would indicate he was injured during the incident.

It was reported that when they spoke to his roommate, he told them that he did throw the pizza dough at the man’s head.

The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. He is facing preliminary charges of one count of misdemeanor battery, and one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief under $200. According to records he is currently being held in lieu of a $1,150 bond.
