PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) – A Florida man is accused of tossing a sandwich at his girlfriend as they cruised down an interstate, knocking off her glasses and nearly causing her to lose control of the car.

Police say 19-year-old Emmanuelle Rodriguez is charged with domestic battery for Friday’s sandwich-tossing incident. According to police, Rodriguez became angry during an argument as she drove and threw the sandwich at her because he didn’t want to hit her.

A police report didn’t specify what type of sandwich was involved.

Police also say Rodriguez ripped off the rearview mirror and used it to break the windshield.

Rodriguez was released Saturday on $7,500 bail. Court records show Rodriguez did not have an attorney as of Thursday.
