Pizza should never be used as a weapon — but there was a dramatic domestic violence incident in Masury, Ohio on Tuesday night, one that involved 'za and tires rolling into the street.
Kenneth Evans, 24, is accused of pushing a woman’s head repeatedly as she was driving and throwing a pizza at her face. Police did not specify what the relationship was between Evans and the woman. Because it is suspected domestic violence, her identity has not been revealed.
He was arrested and charged with assault and criminal damage or endangering. He was released from Trumbull County Jail on Thursday, according to jail records. It is unclear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time.
Brookfield Township Police Department went to Evans’ home after they received a call about domestic violence. When they arrived, they spotted tires in the street and could hear yelling from the home. Police said they walked up to the home where the victim looked at them from an upstairs window. The police knocked and nobody responded but police noted in a report that they could "still hear yelling."
Once inside police said they could tell immediately that Evans was “obviously intoxicated" and exhibiting shifting moods. Police said he immediately complied after one pointed a stun gun at him, telling him to sit on the floor. Even though he listened and obeyed their orders, police said he continued his screaming.
The alleged victim told police that Evans began attacking her as she was driving home. She accused him of pushing her head while driving and also of hitting her in the face with pizza.
Police said she suffered minor injuries in the altercation. When the pair got back to the home, Evans allegedly continued his rampage by attempting to fight a neighbor, throwing tires into the street, smashing a mailbox and flipping a couch over. Evans only appeared to admit to the flipping of the couch. He denied touching the alleged victim.
Even after he was arrested, police noted that his moods shifted wildly. One moment he would be laughing hysterically, the next crying.
