An Iowa Man was arrested on Tuesday after using a McChicken sandwich to hit his wife.
According to the Des Moines Register, 21-year-old Marvin Hill got upset with his pregnant wife after he woke up from a nap and found out that she bought him a McChicken sandwich for lunch. Instead of saying something like, I don’t know, “thank you,” Hill decided to throw the sandwich at his wife.
Hill reportedly threw the sandwich at her several times and then smashed it in her face.
The Des Moines Register writes:
“Hill said his wife woke him up around 1 p.m. with a McChicken in hand. He admitted to police that he became upset and threw the sandwich at her, then picked up some of the bun, throwing it at her again … Hill’s wife had mayonnaise on her shirt and face when officers located her. According to the woman, Hill had forcefully smashed the bun into her face.”
Hill tried to tell police that his wife was the one who assaulted him. He took a video of his wife cleaning mayonnaise off her face and tried to use the film as evidence that she was the aggressor in the incident. The unidentified woman did knock the phone out of his hand at one point, but police believe that Hill was purposefully trying to entice his wife into doing so.
The man was arrested for simple domestic assault and booked into Polk County Jail. Police also confiscated Hill’s weapons license which is odd since you don’t need a license to obtain a McChicken sandwich.
