Rubin’s Sandwich: Another Florida Man Charged with Assault of a Girlfriend Using a Sandwich

rubin_matthew_t220Matthew J. Rubin may have a rye sense of humor and easy with the condiments, but he has to learn a bit about throwing food. For the second time in a month, a Florida man has been charged with battery by sandwich on a girlfriend. Rubin, 20, allegedly hurled a sandwich at his 19-year-old girlfriend during an argument over renewing insurance on his car. Port Lucie seems to have had a rash of these sandwich assaults.

His girlfriend says that he also hit the top of her head with his fist in the food fight. He admits to the flying sandwich toss but not the knuckle sandwich.

Last month, again in Port Lucie, Emmanuelle Rodriguez is accused of throwing a sandwich at his girlfriend while she was driving from his mother’s house in Port St. Lucie.

Port Lucie has been a constant source of entries on this blog, here and here — leading to plans for the Turley blog to open a satellite office in the town (near a sandwich shop).

The problem with the current case is that a Rueben sandwich found at the scene could be self-incriminating.reuben

  1. Battery by sandwich, that’s classic. I would not to want to explain that one on the criminal charges section of an employment application. I hope the defendant’s future employers have a sense of humor.

  2. This is outrageous, I mean how hurt could you really be from a sandwich? It’s obvious this girl just has it out for him. And the second poster is right, things would have gotten quite messy if lunch-time was beef wellington instead of sandwich.

  3. Gyges,

    Strangelove is a classic.

    Still, one of my all time fav scenes involves the line “Okay, but you’ll have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.”

  4. Excuse me:

    “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room”
    I hate it when I misquote things

  5. Bob,

    Or the pie-fight at the end of “Dr. Strangelove?”

    “You can’t fight in the war room!”
