Dispute over preference of pancakes or waffles for breakfast led to man's arrest

A man from Muncie, Indiana, was arrested on several charges after a woman claimed he beat her up due to her preference for waffles over pancakes for breakfast.

Breion Donte Thomas, 25, was preliminarily charged with strangulation, criminal confinement, battery with injury and interference with reporting a crime. Officers responded to a home in reference to a possible domestic dispute.

When they arrived, the victim said Thomas became angry with her because she told him she wanted waffles after he made her pancakes for breakfast. The victim told police Thomas pushed her around, punched her several times in the back with a closed fist and threw her onto a bed.

The woman also told officers Thomas strangled her with her shirt so that she couldn’t breathe. The woman said she attempted to call 911, but Thomas reportedly took her phone and shut it off. Thomas had fled the residence by the time officers arrived at the scene.
