Domestic violence ... with beer
It's not so much that I don't get it, but rather that I wonder how far this goes.
She was charged with battery by beer.
Melva Ann Wixon, 49, was arrested Tuesday night on a domestic battery charge after a wet incident at her apartment.
Here's the police version of events:
Wixon got home about 7 p.m. at an apartment she shares with her boyfriend, Eric Hartman. She had been drinking at a bar. He had been sleeping.
She was angry at him because he plans to move to Ohio. So she poured beer on him. This woke him up.
Displeased by her action, Hartman called police.
When I was younger I knew a couple of people whose fathers had woken them up by throwing buckets of cold water on them. Would that count as child abuse, or are there differences between beer and water, lovers and parents?

The police upon finding out what his claim was should have kicked his ass for wasting their time.

It's potentially very dangerous. A sufficient quantity of beer could cause the victim to drown in their sleep. The government should immediately launch a nationwide campaign to make the public aware of this new threat, as well as issuing anyone in immediate danger of such an attack with a free one of these:

What the fuck?
Pouring a drink over someone is assault?
Dear lack-of-god. What is the fucking world coming to??

Alcohol is a dangerous liquid. It can be flammable. The guy could have drowned.

Who knows, there are beers with very high alcohol content. What if the guy was allergic to it?

If they had a water bed and she broke it, would he call the cops and say it was an attempted drowning?

yell at some one what you're going to do to them for pissing you off while simultaneously appearing capable of the task can land you a conviction, even if you don't do the act
Most employees don't bother about it, since its par for the course and undertaking some sort of legal sojourn is not most people's idea of a fun time.
Nevertheless there is a guy at work doing just that.
