Man accused of attacking wife with sandwich

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. — A western Nebraska man is accused of assaulting his wife with a sandwich.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald says 50-year-old Larry Spurling, of Melbeta, is charged with disturbing the peace. According to the arrest affidavit, Spurling's wife called 911 late Sunday and reported he pushed her down during an argument and rubbed a sandwich in her face.

The newspaper says court documents don't detail the ingredients, but a deputy found several pieces of lunchmeat on the carpet outside a bedroom and some pieces of bread in the bedroom.

Spurling appeared in Scotts Bluff County Court on Monday. His case is not listed on the online court system, and it's unclear if he has an attorney. He remained in jail on Monday.
