Sheriff’s Office

A dispute over bread led to a third-degree domestic violence charge against a Last Drive woman on Tuesday night.

The incident began with a dispute over some bread the woman’s boyfriend refused to remove from a table, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The man said his girlfriend picked up a monkey wrench and attempted to assault him with it.

She then took a pot of grease and threw it at him, the report states.

Next, she allegedly used an unknown object to strike him in the head. He refused medical assistance.

Deputies spoke with his girlfriend, who noted that the situation wouldn’t have gotten out of hand if he moved the bread from the table, the report said.
