A Moundville, Alabama man has been charged with domestic violence for accusations that he became physically aggressive with his roommate.

On Friday, 52-year-old Duane Barry Smith allegedly became upset when he ate a bowl of Cap’n Crunch cereal and learned that it was stale. He assumed that his roommate did not close the package properly after he had used it himself, and he called the man out on his supposed action.

Smith told the man that since he is lacking a full set of teeth it is painful to eat the cereal when it is not fresh. He reportedly then became angry and tried to force his roommate to remove his false teeth and chew some of the hardened product so that he could feel the discomfort for himself.

A Florida couple has been accused of failing to seek needed dental attention for their daughter, and refusing to accept outreach offered to assist them in obtaining the treatment. Reports indicated that the parents neglected the child’s needs for close to two years before they were arrested.

When the young girl, whose age has been withheld, began the school year in August 2016 it was noticed that she had several rotten teeth causing her issues. The child complained to teachers about pain, and it was said that she was only able to eat soft foods.

Concerns about her oral health caused a school social worker to contact her parents and offer assistance in getting the child the care she needed. Medical permission slips granting consent for free dental work were sent home with the girl for signature, but her parents allegedly never returned them.
