Police: Man used McChicken sandwich as weapon
DES MOINES, IA - An Iowa man was arrested Tuesday after he reportedly used a McDonald's McChicken sandwich as a weapon against his pregnant wife, according to law enforcement.
Police said Marivin Tramaine Hill II, 21, told them that he threw the poultry-based sandwich at his wife "because he doesn't like them (McChicken sandwiches)". Hill was arrested for simple domestic assault and booked into the Polk County Jail.
When Des Moines police went to the couple's home to further investigate, Hill told police that it was actually his wife who assaulted him.
According to Hill, his wife woke up around 1 p.m., armed with a McChicken. He admitted to police that he became upset with his wife and threw the sandwich at her, then followed up by tossing some of the bun in her general direction.
The woman went to the bathroom to clean herself up after the food fight, but Hill followed her and began to record her using his cell phone camera. He later showed the video to the police in which investigators witnessed the woman knocking the phone out of his hands.
According to investigator's Hill's wife had mayonnaise on her shirt and face when they arrived on the scene. She told police that Hill had forcefully smashed the bun of the McChicken sandwich into her face.
The police report notes that the woman's nose was swollen, and officers believed Hill was trying to provoke the woman into knocking the phone out of his hands to make her appear aggressive. Hill was arrested and his weapons permit was confiscated by authorities.
Hill remains in custody at the Polk County Jail.
