We’ve heard of food fights, but this one really takes the cake cheeseburger.

According to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, 30-year-old Kyle Jamison Jones was arrested on May 4 for allegedly slapping his girlfriend in the face with a cheeseburger while she was asleep in bed. He was charged with battery, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

Police were called to Jones’ residence by his live-in girlfriend, 28, who reported the attack-by-burger. The woman, who remains unidentified, also claimed that Jones pulled her hair and kicked her down the stairs. She said he “woke her up by slapping her with a cheeseburger.”

Police said there was no clear motive or cause behind the supposed violence, but Jones admitted to authorities at the scene the pair had a verbal dispute.

He “refused to say anything about becoming physical with the victim,” said police.

“Kyle Jamison Jones wanted it his way,” said the sheriff’s office in a statement on Facebook. “When he didn’t get it, things between him and his girlfriend escalated.”

Jones was released from the Martin County jail on bond.
