A Zephyrhills man was arrested late last month following an altercation during which he struck a woman with Sweet 'N Sour Sauce packets.
Jesus Oscar Ferrer, Jr., 30, was charged with felony battery, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
He became angry when a woman identified in the arrest affidavit as the mother of his child bought the wrong food at McDonald's.
A verbal altercation over the June 30 order became physical, the woman told deputies, when Ferrer began striking her in the head and face with Sweet 'N Sour Sauce packets.
The woman grabbed the man's beard, and a struggle ensued. Ferrer pinned her to the ground, placed his palm onto her face and pressed her head into the ground using his body weight, the affidavit states.
The woman ripped a chunk of the man's beard from his face, and he let her up. She then fled the scene.
The woman had marks on her face consistent with her statements, deputies said.
