Wanton Tamale Assault Lands Florida Woman Behind Bars
The Florida woman was arrested Saturday morning for domestic battery after allegedly assaulting her boyfriend with a plate of tamales. Sanchez, 30, told cops that she tossed the corn-based projectiles at her boyfriend after he called her a “bitch” in front of the couple’s one-year-old son.
According to a police report excerpted here, deputies responded to a 911 call from the Bradenton home shared by the couple. Upon their arrival, officers found the alleged victim, Roberto Olvera, with “tamale sauce all over his pants.”
As officers were interviewing Olvera, Sanchez, a cop noted, “burst in interrupting him telling him to tell me that he called her a bitch” during an argument earlier in the day, and that “she threw the tamales on him because she is not going to let him call her a bitch in front of her son and get away with it.”
Sanchez, a teacher’s assistant, was booked into the Manatee County Jail on a misdemeanor battery count. She was released after posting $500 bond.
