Man accused of using wife's head to mop up spilt milk in dispute over peanut butter sandwich

An argument over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich led to a violent situation in Florida. Police said a man in Fruitland Park used his wife as a human mop to clean up the mess they made. "He turned into a monster," said the victim, who does not wish to be identified.

Keith Davidson, 46, was arrested on Sunday for battery against his wife. Bruises were left on her arm. "When I went to go grab the peanut butter, I hit the cup of milk. The cup of milk fell on the floor," the victim said. Police said Davidson used his wife's head as a mop to clean up the spilled milk on the floor.

It happened because of a dispute over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, police said. "She threw my peanut butter and jelly on the floor," Davidson told a dispatcher during a 911 call. According to Carol Wick, CEO of Harbor House of Central Florida, food is often a factor in domestic violence.

"Often times we find it's around food. They use that as an excuse to then lash out at their partner," Wick said. Davidson has been in trouble with the law before. Jail records indicate he has faced charges for drugs and battery. Davidson was released from jail on a $1,000 bond. The victim said Davidson is not welcome back at home.
