LARGO — They weren't exactly using lethal weapons, but a food fight between a boyfriend and girlfriend landed them both in jail early Wednesday, authorities say.
According to Largo police, Keane E. Langel and his girlfriend, Brenda M. Riley, were arguing at their home at 301 N Belcher Road, No. 901, just after midnight when Langel started spitting bananas on Riley and throwing doughnuts at her.
Riley, 49, then "armed herself with a banana," ripped the fruit into two pieces and jammed them into Langel's ears, an arrest report shows.
No injuries were reported, but both were charged with domestic battery.
Langel, 59, also was charged with tampering with a victim because, Largo police said, he took Riley's cell phone from her and broke it as she was trying to call authorities.
Riley was ultimately able to call police, arrest reports show.
Riley was released on her own recognizance Wednesday afternoon. At 4 p.m., Langel was still being held in the Pinellas County Jail.
