Princeton, MN — A man accused of throwing food items at his wife after arguing about his ex-girlfriend’s Facebook profile pic got exactly what he wished for, after repeatedly stating to police that he would rather go to jail than to stay with his wife.
Eustaquio Israel Morales-Hernandez told police that on the evening of the alleged food fight, he had consumed about nine beers and was stalking his ex-girlfriend’s profile. Well, the wife caught him lookin’. That, my friends, led to the lamest verbal argument ever.
The current bitch reportedly said the ex-bitch looked like a man. Morales-Hernandez came back with a snappy retort. It went a little like this…
“Well, if she looks like a man, than you look like a cow.”
The two apparently continued to go back and forth a bit… the wife called Morales-Hernandez a Mexican burrito and an illegal alien. His response? Elephant.
Morales-Hernandez then allegedly started throwing random kitchen and food items at her… one of the items made contact with her trunk. Erm, face. Officers later found a metal food can and a bag of sugar on the kitchen floor.
When it was apparent an arrest was going to be made, Morales-Hernandez reportedly offered up his wrists and stated that he would much rather spend time in jail than spend any more time with his wife. Police say he was uncharacteristically cooperative during the arrest and booking process.
He’s now behind bars on a misdemeanor count of domestic assault – intentionally attempting to inflict bodily harm. If convicted, he’s looking at up to 90 days in jail and a whoppin’ $1,000 fine.
This doesn’t appear to be Morales-Hernandez’s first go ’round… if Busted Mugshots is to be believed, he faced the same charges back in April.
