(CHICAGO) -- Dawn Montesdeoca, 50, of Chicago, used an unusually sweet weapon when she assaulted her husband, Arturo Montesdeoca, 56, with cupcakes during an argument that got progressively sticky and ended with a charge of domestic battery.
The fight began as a verbal disagreement around 7:30 p.m. Saturday but soon escalated to a physical altercation.
“The woman struck the husband about the head with her hands and then commenced to hit him with cupcakes,” the Chicago Police Department said in a statement.
When police arrived, they found Arturo Monesdeoca with icing smeared on his head and clothes. Police arrested his wife for misdemeanor domestic battery.
On Sunday morning, Cook County Circuit Judge Adam D. Bourgeois Jr. charged Montesdeoca and released her from jail on a $10,000 bond and ordered electronic monitoring.
Arturo Montesdeoca reportedly told police that his wife had been verbally aggressive, and that he feared for his safety when he called police, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Dawn Montesdeoca is scheduled to appear in Domestic Violence Court Nov. 1.
