Perhaps, he should go easier on the peppermint schnapps next time?

From the Bainbridge Island police blotter for December 25th:

Assault: A Bainbridge woman was arrested for striking her boyfriend’s head with a hot cup of cocoa at a Pleasant Beach Drive home shortly after 11:15 p.m. Police found the victim cleaning the peppermint schnapps-flavored hot chocolate off of a vehicle parked in a garage. He told police he had made the hot chocolate to ease the suspect’s nerves after they had an argument about financial issues. The hot chocolate’s ceramic mug caused a small lump when it struck him near an ear.

Merry friggin’ Christmas, idiot! This year I got you a concussion!

Aren’t we classy on Bainbridge? Somewhere else it might have been a glass of Rebel Yell, and not (I’m guessing here) a handmade ceramic mug filled with Scharffen Berger hot cocoa with schnapps. But I think the island version would pack the bigger punch.

Especially if the cocoa was HOT.

And do we believe the official statement? A fight about financial issues? Would that make you throw a spiked mug of cocoa? What do you think they were really fighting about?

  1. I’m guessing that the doofus probably made a crack about how much money his girlfriend spent on that fancy-shmancy hot chocolate. The implication was clearly there that the money could have been much better spent on something USEFUL – like a new Wii, or an iPhone.

    Just a guess. Not like we have those sorts of disagreements in our canoe, I mean, home. :-)
