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 ‘making him live in the country’ before the disturbance. She added that he was bored as ‘there is no place for him to walk’. The court heard how Spurling drank three large cans of 8% malt liquor Natty Daddy leading up to the incident. His wife said she ‘got tired’ 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.
