Man jailed for attacking wife with sandwich
American Larry Spurling has been jailed after admitting attacking his wife - with a sandwich. Spurling pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace following an incident at his home in Melbeta, Nebraska, on Sunday. The 50-year-old was arrested after his wife called 911 following an argument in which Spurling pushed her down on a bed before rubbing the sandwich in her face. An officer who arrived at the property told a court on Monday that he found several pieces of meat on the carpet outside a bedroom and bits of bread just metres away. The woman said her husband had grown angry with her for â€˜making him live in the countryâ€™ before the disturbance. She added that he was bored as â€˜there is no place for him to walkâ€™. The court heard how Spurling drank three large cans of 8% malt liquor Natty Daddy leading up to the incident. His wife said she â€˜got tiredâ€™ of an argument before making herself a sandwich and going to a bedroom, while Spruling followed her moments later. He was sentenced to five days in jail. However, it is not clear what was in the sandwich.
