INDIANTOWN, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man has been charged with domestic battery after authorities say he slammed a hot sweet potato pie in his girlfriend's face during the couple's Thanksgiving dinner.
According to a Martin County Sheriff's Office report, 46-year-old Christopher Ford threw the pie because he didn't like the food.

fixed and the two got began arguing in the kitchen.
During the argument, the sheriff's office report says Ford picked up the sweet potato pie she had just removed from the oven and smashed it into her face.
The victim was transported to the hospital to treat burns and blisters on her neck.
The sheriff's office says Ford was released on a $5,000 bond.
A jail spokesman says Ford did not immediately have an attorney.
