Cookie Cake Battery

FEBRUARY 28--A Louisiana man celebrating his birthday got into an argument with his 77-year-old father and allegedly assaulted his kin with a “cookie cake” purchased by the older man, according to cops.

Investigators allege that Kenneth Fulmer, 44, left his family’s residence Monday evening after arguing with a neighbor. He reportedly went out drinking and returned to the Bossier Parish home intoxicated.

While Fulmer was carousing, his father Jack went out and purchased a birthday cookie cake to "cheer up his son," according to a Bossier Sheriff's Office spokesperson.  

However, when Fulmer returned home drunk, he began arguing with his father and subsequently “battered” the pensioner “with a cookie cake,” according to a sheriff’s report.

Specifically, investigators charge, Fulmer smashed the cake over the head of his father, who was “covered in the cookie cake” when Deputy Heath Balkom arrived at the home in response to a disorderly person call.

Pictured in the above mug shot, Fulmer was arrested for simple battery of the infirmed and disturbing the peace. Fulmer was booked into the local jail shortly before midnight Monday. He was released yesterday after posting $15,150 bond. (1 page)
