Food fight escalates to alleged assault
Wadena Minnesota 314 S. Jefferson 56482

What started as a food fight turned into a domestic assault charge for a 44-year-old Verndale woman.

According to a Wadena County District Court probable cause statement, Mary Alice Stiles began arguing with a man at a Verndale residence and threw a piece of pizza at him. The man threw it back, and then Stiles turned her attention to a juvenile at the residence, pushing her and swinging at her trying to hit her, court documents said.

Stiles was charged Aug. 9 with gross misdemeanor domestic assault.

She was previously convicted of domestic violence in June 2009.
