A 32-year-old man accused of hitting his wife with a small bat after getting “enraged because she ate all the French fries” faces charges, according to a recently released Martin County Sheriff’s Office report.
Fernando Guzman Cruz, 32, faces charges including false imprisonment with a weapon (domestic), battery (domestic) and assault (domestic) following the 2 a.m. Friday incidents in the 11500 block of Southwest Kanner Highway in Indiantown.
Cruz’s 51-year-old wife said Cruz was “enraged because she ate all the French fries” and started to yell, swear and throw things around their trailer.
She said he started swinging a 12 inch wood bat at her but missed. She tried to leave three times, but Cruz, who was intoxicated and smelled strongly of booze, locked the door and threw her on their living room bed. He finally hit her right calf and foot with the bat.
Hat tip to Will!
