RACINE, Wis. (WITI) -- Triston Scarpetta, 24, faces multiple charges after a fight with a woman over a Filet-O-Fish sandwich.
According to a criminal complaint, Racine officers were dispatched to an apartment in Racine on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 9 to investigate an assault report. An officer made contact with a woman who lives with Scarpetta, who said “she ordered the defendant a Filet-O-Fish sandwich from McDonald's. (The woman) stated the employees at McDonald's put cheese and tartar sauce on the Filet-O-Fish. (The woman) stated the defendant does not like cheese and tartar sauce” and “became angry” because of how the sandwich was made.
The woman told police Scarpetta “got in her face,” pushed her and caused her to fall, “striking the back of her neck.” When she got up, the complaint says Scarpetta “put (the woman) in a chokehold and began choking her.” When the woman began to scream, Scarpetta fled the apartment, taking the woman's cellphone on the way out.
The complaint says while Scarpetta was taken into custody, he stated the officer “was lucky that the defendant was in handcuffs.”
Scarpetta faces the following criminal counts: misdemeanor battery, domestic abuse assessments; misdemeanor intimidation of a victim, domestic abuse assessments; disorderly conduct, domestic abuse assessments.
