A husband and wife from Grayson County in Kentucky had an argument about the seemingly petty issue of the mere size of cake slices but the fight led to an ugly domestic violence. The husband has been charged with domestic violence and assaulting a deputy sheriff.
Grayson County Sheriff Office deputies received a call Friday evening regarding a violence call and responded to the scene of the incident on Betty Lane in Leitchfield. Officials found after the initial investigation that Charles Piehl, 44, allegedly assaulted his wife after their argument over him cutting pieces of cake that were too large for everyone.
The police added that Piehl also tried to assault their son who tried to intervene and break his parents’ altercation and protect the mom.
Officers said that Piehl refused to comply with deputies’ command when they arrived at his home. Instead, Piehl just went out to have a cigarette. Deputies had no choice but to have the suspect tased. Even then, Piehl tried to resist arrest, kicking a deputy in the chest, dislodging his body camera in the process.
Piehl was eventually arrested and taken to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center.
Piehl was charged with assaulting a police officer, assault, endangering the welfare of a minor, menacing, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
