Have you seen those Snickers commercials that advertise that you're not you when you're hungry? That was the first thing I thought of when I read this news story. According to the news, a man was arrested after getting violent with his wife over a grilled cheese sandwich. Apparently, his wife made him a grilled cheese sandwich with three slices of cheese instead of two. He only wanted two slices of cheese, so he began screaming at his wife. Their 12-year-old daughter then ended up calling 911 from her mom's cell phone, telling police her dad hit her mom and pulled their phone out of the wall. The man later told police he pulled the phone from the wall because he wanted to prevent his wife from calling police for a “stupid reason”. I guess the Snickers statement can definitely be true – you are not you when you're hungry, or when you want your food made a certain way. In Denver, Adams County and across Colorado, the husband could face charges of Obstruction of Telephone or Telegraph Service and Assault – Domestic Violence charges, among other charges.
