Nebraska newlywed jailed after attacking wife with sandwich
A Nebraska newlywed appeared in court earlier this week after being accused of attacking his wife with a sandwich.
Larry Spurling, 50, is alleged to have pushed his wife onto a bed and then rubbed the sandwich in her face, during an argument at the couple's home in Melbeta, Nebraska.
The Scotts Bluff Star-Herald reported that Spurling pleaded no contest to the charges at Scotts Bluff County Court on Monday.
His wife, Tammy Spurling, reportedly called 911 at around 10pm on Sunday to inform police that her husband had pushed her over and smeared the sandwich on her face.
Mr Spurling had allegedly become "irate after he blamed her for making him live in the country and being bored since there is no place for him to walk," according to an arrest affidavit.
It is believed that Spurling drank three three 24-ounce cans of "Natty Daddy," a malt liquor with an 8-percent alcohol content, during the argument.
His wife becoming tired of the argument went into the bedroom of their trailer home, but Mr Spurling followed her and the assault then occurred.
"During the altercation between Mr. Spurling and his wife, Mr. Spurling pulled Ms. Spurling’s hair, pushed her down onto the bed, took the sandwich and began rubbing it into Ms. Spurling’s face," the affidavit, which was obtained by the Daily News, says.
Mr Spurling was sentenced on Monday to five days in jail.
