You Can't Make This Stuff Up


A western Nebraska man is jailed after assaulting his wife with a sandwich.

Larry Spurling, 50, of Melbeta, pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace in connection with the incident that happened late Sunday.

According to the arrest affidavit, Spurling's wife called 911 and reported he pushed her down during an argument and rubbed a sandwich in her face.

The woman told deputies that Spurling had become irate for "making him live in the county" and "being bored since there is no place for him to walk."

She said that the argument went on for some time, during which Spurling drank three 24-oz cans of Natty Daddy, a malt liquor with 8 percent alcohol content.

The woman told deputies that she "got tired" of the argument and made herself a sandwich and went to a bedroom.

Spurling followed her, according to the affidavit, pulled her hair, pushed her onto the bed and rubbed the sandwich on her face.

A deputy said he found several pieces of lunch meat on the carpet outside a bedroom and some pieces of bread in the bedroom.

The woman said she had mayonnaise in her hair and on her face as a result of the attack, but she cleaned herself up before deputies arrived.

Spurling entered the no contest plea on Monday and was sentenced to five days in jail.
