A woman who threw cupcakes at her husband was arrested for domestic battery and now has to wear an electronic monitoring device. The woman and her cupcakes assaulted the husband and it was the third visit by the police are to the home of Dawn and Arturo Montesdeoca.
However, this time when they arrived at the home, officers say they witnessed Dawn pelting her Arturo with the chocolate snacks, and they had all the evidence of the crime left on his shirt.
The fight started with a verbal quarrel about 7:45 p.m. at the home, but escalated when she started hitting her husband over the head.
After that, she reached for the box of desserts and directed a fusillade of the snacks at his head and body. Several of the confections apparently hit their mark, as the man’s head and shirt were smudged with icing when authorities arrived. Local authorities have never been involved with a woman and cupcakes case before.
Arturo told officers he feared for his safety, and she was verbally aggressive with officers, the report states. Police said she admitted hurling the treats at him.
On Sunday morning, Cook County Circuit Judge Adam D. Bourgeois Jr. ordered electronic bracelet for her and a $10,000 bond.
