And then this happened:
A Pasco County man spent new years day behind bars, after sheriff's deputies say he assaulted his live in girlfriend with a banana. […]
When [the Cops] arrived, Smolinsky's live-in girlfriend told them he threw a banana at her. Smolinsky denied the accusation and told deputies she threw the banana at him.
According to the arrest affidavit, the arresting deputy noticed the victim's face was slightly red where she said she was hit by the banana. That deputy also observed the banana in the garbage and parts of the peel were on the ground near the couch where she was sitting.
