An angry wife called police to report that her husband assaulted her son for eating too many sausages, police in Ohio said.

The Canton Police Department said that 35-year-old Robert J. Jones was arrested on Tuesday, after being accused of hitting the head of his wife’s son.

Police were called to the family home, which is located at 418 Lincoln Avenue, around 9:00 p.m.

The child’s mother had called police, saying that when she entered the kitchen, she saw her husband with his arm around her child’s neck.

After she pushed her husband away from the boy, Jones continued yelling at the boy because he ate all the sausages. Jones then slammed shut the refrigerator door, knocking out some of the food.

When the boy went to clean up the mess, he pushed the child’s head into the refrigerator. The child was taken to Mercy Medical Center, after suffering a non-fatal wound.

Jones was brought before the Canton Municipal Court, where he was charged with domestic violence. His bail was set at $51,000.
