Larry Spurling, 50, of Melbeta, pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace in connection with the incident.
According to the arrest affidavit, his wife called 911 and reported that he pushed her down during an argument and rubbed a sandwich in her face, KETV reported.
His wife told deputies that Spurling had become irritated with her for “making him live in the county,” and “being bored since there is no place for him to walk.”
She revealed that the couple’s argument went on for some time, during which Spurling drank three 24-oz cans of Natty Daddy, a malt liquor with 8 percent alcohol content.
The woman told deputies that she “got tired” of the quarrel and made herself a sandwich and went to the bedroom.
However, Spurling followed her, pulled her hair, pushed her onto the bed and rubbed the sandwich that she made for herself, on her face.
A deputy said that he had found several pieces of lunch meat on the carpet outside the bedroom and some pieces of bread inside the bedroom.
The woman said that as a result of the attack, she had mayonnaise in her hair and on her face, but cleaned herself up before deputies arrived.
Spurling entered the no contest plea on Monday and was sentenced to five days imprisonment.
