Domestic Violence with a sandwich is funny I guess.

Posted by Hannah at 11:32 PM

I was reading In the shadow of your wings about a story of a women driving down the highway with her infant son in the back, and her boyfriend instead of HITTING her decides to nail her with his sandwich.

In The Shadow of your wings mentioned MSNBN in the blog post, but if you look around - its all over the place!

The joke? Was it a CLUB sandwich? We aren't sure what type of SANDWICH he hit her with! Yeah - really funny!

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - A man faces a domestic battery charge after allegedly hitting his girlfriend with a sandwich as she was driving on Interstate 95 on Friday. Police said the 19-year-old man became angry and hit the woman in the arm and face with a sandwich, knocking her glasses off.

The victim nearly lost control of the car because she couldn't see the road and the man then allegedly ripped off the rear-view mirror and used it to shatter the windshield.

The man was freed on $7,500 bail.

Police haven't said what type of sandwich was involved.

Domestic violence isn't a joke! It wasn't just MSBBC it was the same story all over the internet, and I find it tasteless personally.

The telegraph had a bit of a different take on things.

This their HA HA picture of the sandwich, and a caption below stating, "Not clear what type of sandwich was used"

Emmanuelle Rodriguez, 19, was reportedly picked up by his girlfriend and seven-month-old son from his mother's house in Port St Lucie, Florida.

The alleged incident took place on Interstate 95, as the couple were travelling north to their new apartment in Fort Pierce.

Following an argument, Rodriguez knocked off his girlfriend's glasses and nearly caused a traffic pile-up.

According to the report, the victim told police that Rodriguez got angry while she drove and "started to hit her in the arm and striking her in the face with a sandwich, knocking her glasses off her face."

The victim nearly lost control of the vehicle because she couldn't see the road. Rodriguez then ripped off the rear view mirror and used it to beat and shatter the windshield. She exited I-95 and told Rodriguez to get out and get his mother to pick him up.

According to Sun-Sentinel.com, Rodriguez told investigators that he argued, and he "didn't want to hit her so he threw a sandwich at her striking her in the face knocking her glasses off."

The type of sandwich thrown was not disclosed in the report.

Rodriguez was released on £5,000 bail from the St Lucie county jail, according to the report.

I have to wonder WHY the type of sandwich was so important, and HOW they could make light of this? I'm sure the judge would wish to be CLEAR on that in order to figure out what kind of sentence he needs. What is grilled cheese better?

Associate Press is the one that started this junk, and then all our POPULAR no brain news release places decided to follow suit!

They seriously want to talk about something NOT so politically correct? The journalist that say the PUBLIC AS A RIGHT TO KNOW! Well News Media - you have a right to know that is down right insulting.......and HOW dare YOU! Can we call for your resignation? How about your job? Can we BRAND you forever like you do others? What about all the 'lets follow suit' places like Fox news that didn't have an issue posting this little FUNNY! You have local news stations, and other news media all posting the 'Police won't say what type of sandwich!" story! Kansascity.com dared to say, "To much Mayo?"

Here we have a 19 year old father in a moving car going highway speeds - gets mad at his girlfriend while his child is in the back - and strikes her. Then decides to strike her with a sandwich almost causing an accident. Takes the rearview mirror and crashes the windshield.....and she has enough GOOD sense to drop his butt off and tell him to GET OUT and has him arrested.......and these NEWS outlets think its funny to mention the type of sandwich?

Domestic violence with a sandwich is NOT funny! We have complete morons I guess in the press that seem to think needing to know what type of sandwich was involved is worth mentioning as well. How is that NEWS worthy? Why would the public NEED to know about the TYPE of sandwich? Do they have no class at all?

The first time my husband hit me, he beat me over the head with a disposable diaper (unused) until it was in shreds. He was enraged because I interrupted him watching a TV show to get the diapers out of the car when our infant son had one of those catastrophic poopy diapers and had a mess everywhere that I was trying to contain.

I couldn't understand why I was so incredibly hurt by that incident since, obviously, he didn't hurt me physically. It was many years later before I understood the significance of the event was not in the weapon he used and my lack of physical wounds but in his attitude and actions.

I'm glad in this instance charges were pressed. And I hope a judge sees past the sandwich! It is not about bread and what lies between the slices.

I agree with you. This story just enraged me! I'm sorry you had to deal with that as well. What kind of people do that?

I agree. It's maddening when the press treats it as a food fight. All 3 were in real danger. A traffic pile up is nothing to laugh about.

And Danni, how exactly did your husband think you were to handle a horribly messy diaper without the needed supplies? Perhaps the solution would have been to place the baby's poopy rear on his daddy's lap while you went to get the diapers?? Imagine the rage that would have caused!!

I have to conclude the press (and most of society) just don't get it yet.

No it isn't funny! Abuse is abuse even if the weapon was a sandwich.

it was still an act of domestic violence.

Thank God she was in a situation where she pressed charges.

I hope and pray that she didn't remain in a relationship with him.

I have been trying to see if I could find any follow up on this story. I hope she did as well!
