Hamburger Battery

JUNE 9--During an argument over infidelity, a Florida woman threw a hamburger at her boyfriend, striking him in the eye and landing her in jail.

According to cops, Rykihia Moore and Mario Thornton were bickering Saturday evening over Moore reportedly “being unfaithful.”

In the midst of the verbal beef inside a Clearwater home, the 27-year-old Moore “took a hamburger” and threw it at Thornton, her beau of 12 months. The burger, a criminal complaint alleges, struck Thornton in the eye.

When Moore was questioned by a sheriff’s deputy, she reportedly copped to winging the burger at Thornton, adding that “it may have hit him.”

Pictured above, Moore, who works at a Ruby Tuesday restaurant, was arrested for simple battery dating violence, a misdemeanor. She spent a night in jail before being released Sunday afternoon on her own recognizance.

The complaint indicates that no weapon was seized by police. (1 page)
