Woman Arrested for Attacking Husband With Cupcakes

cupcake attackDomestic disputes are usually nothing to poke fun at, but as we all know, there are exceptions to every rule. On Sunday, a Chicago woman was arrested for attacking her husband with cupcakes and has been charged with a misdemeanor count of battery. During an argument with her honey, the woman started throwing the sugar bombs and nailed him in the head and body. He was none too pleased about it, though, and called the cops.


A cupcake assault? Personally it sounds like a dream come true. If my husband ever threw any dessert at me, you better believe I would absolutely love it and reward him for good behavior. The judge in this case, however, feels differently. Her punishment is mad steep, yo.

She's been sentenced to electronic monitoring and was given a $10,000 bond. When the police arrived, the husband was covered in icing and claimed he was "in fear" of his wife -- when she admitted to the cupcake crime, she was taken into custody.

Granted, this isn't the first time the cops have been called to this couple's home -- there have been other arrests for domestic abuse -- but this latest dessert fight has got to have been the most interesting of their visits. Not too many men complain if their wives cover them in sweet, sugary icing, but there's a first time for everything.

I'm kind of surprised that the cupcake bandit has been ordered to wear an ankle bracelet. Instead of detecting alcohol, will it be able to tell if she's holding a weapon of mass confection? Will it alert the station of her GPS coordinates in relation to bakeries and/or the sweets aisle in the grocery store? Just not sure what monitoring her electronically will do, but if it keeps the husband safe from her sticky sweet attacks, I guess it's a good thing.

How would you feel if your spouse attacked you with cupcakes?
