TAMPA, Fla. -- A Pasco County man spent new years day behind bars, after sheriff's deputies say he assaulted his live in girlfriend with a banana.
Authorities responded to 36-year old Joseph Smolinsky's home on Afton Lane in Port Richey early yesterday morning.
When they arrived, Smolinsky's live-in girlfriend told them he threw a banana at her. Smolinsky denied the accusation and told deputies she threw the banana at him.
As is not infrequently the case with ridiculous news stories, Monty Python has a related skit: How to defend yourself against a banana!
