Hot Dogs Land Florida Couple in Hot Water

 

A Florida couple have been taken into custody after an altercation over a plate of hot dogs.

Anton Van Bladel allegedly snatched the plate of hot dogs from his wife Alfreda, who then in turn stabbed him with a steak knife. Mr Van Bladel then allegedly held a firearm to his wife’s head.

The weapons were found by police and the couple now face aggravated battery and aggravated assault charges.

  Since the charges  
 
are being made against each other, surely it would be in the best interests of everyone if they just dropped the charges?

Sounds like a happy marriage though! LOL

  Hey, Hey!!!  
 
In their defense I believe they were "Ball park" franks.

I think once you stab your partner and/or hold a gun to their head, you are not operating in your best interests.

I think it would be in their best interests to get a divorce and move away from Florida. Fast.

Everyone loves weiners. Some steal them, some stab for them, and others take hostages. Such has been the story since the days of Julius Caesar!

Yeah, I'm not saying they should stay together, only that, since they haven't hurt anyone else, it would be best for both of them if they were to drop the charges against eachother.

Saying that though, the guy held a gun to the woman's head but didn't actually shoot her. She stabbed him with a steak knife, I'm thinking her charges will be more serious than his anyway.

My point was though, if they agree to drop the charges on the basis of them both being complete asshats, then neither of them need get a criminal record.

Yeah that would be the best thing for them to do, but they won't.

You got to remember, they're asshats, they're from Florida, they won't be looking out for thier best interests.

Anyways, if they are willing to maim for their hot dogs, I dare say they are willing to send each other to jail for them.

  @Dropping charges  
 
It's not as easy as just "dropping charges" in most areas. This "dropping charges" nonsense has spread to the public through TV and movies.

In most cases, the district attorney can prosecute the alleged assailant without corroboration from the alleged victim. This means that the city, county, or state can bring charges of "aggravated assault" and "reckless endangerment" and "negligent use of a deadly weapon" against these two dullards.

I suppose that makes sense. If they are stupid enough to do this to eachother, what would they do to a little kid if they liked the look of his hotdog? They might be able to forgive eachother, but they are both unpredictable idiots and could be a danger to other people.

  Hmm, Hun,  
 
Why do you need your gun? We are just going out for a hot dog.
