Man Tries to Drown Wife in Dog Bowl After Fight Over Frozen Pizza

CBS Tampa Bay: Orange City police say a man tried to kill his wife by holding her head in a dog bowl full of water after they fought over pizza. Police arrested Richard Watson, 47, after they received a violent disturbance report in an apartment.

According to the police report, Debra Watson started watching the “12-12-12” benefit concert while her husband was in another room and he joined her after his show was over.

The two then got into a fight about the frozen pizza that was cooked after Richard Watson complained the crust was “raw” and flung his dinner plate on the floor. Debra Watson also threw her plate on the floor in response.

Police say that is when Richard Watson tackled his wife, grabbed her head, and shoved her face into the dog’s water bowl. “She felt her life was going to end,” Orange City Commander Jason Sampsell told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

The paper reports that Debra was able to break free, but then her husband backed her against a corner and tried to strangle her. Richard Watson has been charged with attempted murder, battery and domestic battery by strangulation.

You never know what kind of instrument will be used to try and harm someone – whether it be knives, baseball bats, guns, or a dog’s water bowl, a person intent on harming someone will find a way, some way, some how.

Thankfully the woman was able to break free from her crazy husband (or maybe they are both crazy).

  1. Yes, I demand my Congressman take this cause up NOW! BAN ALL DOG BOWLS!! Quick, what are the statistics from ppl drying in pet bowls? I need to write my newspaper editor (so no one can read it) and Obama (who doesn’t give a rip) NOW! Cripes, this world is going straight insane… *DEEP sigh*

  2. I feel sorry for the dog…..

    I’m willing to bet that there’s a “history” of sorts to these two. The chance that this incident was a sudden and unexpected blowup is extremely slim.

  4. I would say that BOTH of them are crazy, and it wasn’t the first time that the police were at their house! Semper Fi.

    • Ditto and Amen, Vic! They’re bookends on a shelf full of twisted emotions, long-harboured resentments, and a total inability to communicate to one another. In other words, Mr & Mrs Jack Sprat, our average consumers and know-nothings. Hey! It’s not their fault: they’re the product of Modern Times.
