A 29-year-old Florida woman was arrested on allegations of throwing peanut butter on her brother's face in an argument over a urinating dog. Rachel Byrd of Deltona was arrested on Monday on battery charges.
According to a Volusia County Sheriff's report, Byrd and her brother, 30-year-old Gabriel Byrd, began arguing at around 2am because the dog was urinating in the living room of the house shared by the siblings.
Deputies said Rachel Byrd flung a spoonful of peanut butter at her brother, and someone called 911 but hung up. A dispatcher called back but no one answered, so a deputy was sent to the home, officials said.
The deputy said the brother did not want to press charges against his sister, but the deputy noted that peanut butter was running down his face. Rachel Byrd had a cut on her leg from being bitten by the dog, but the deputy determined that she was the aggressor and arrested her. She was taken to Volusia County Branch Jail but later released.
