A couple terminating their relationship was so determined to have the other party arrested that their bickering resulted in a full investigation—basically regarding who overturned a bowl of cereal during a fight, according to a 14-page PCSD report.
When deputies came on scene, the girlfriend said her boyfriend was throwing things at her car as she was trying to leave their house. Her boyfriend denied that, in turn saying that she was actually in the wrong because she'd "flipping milk and cereal onto him" when he was eating in bed. The girlfriend then claimed that it was he who'd spilled cereal on her.
Deputies conducted numerous interviews with each person and did a lot of legwork—including footprint analysis—to resolve the matter. They eventually decided the boyfriend was at fault.
