MELBOURNE, Florida – On Sunday at approximately 5:00 a.m., the Melbourne Police Department was dispatched to an apartment where a man was covered in spaghetti. The man told officers that his girlfriend of 17 years made a mess of their apartment during an argument.

“Well honey, I didn’t do this to myself, that’s for sure,” the man told an officer when asked why he was covered in spaghetti. The man pointed to an apartment where he said his girlfriend threw spaghetti at him, reports show.

As police entered the residence, a woman identified as 34-year-old Tamara Gwendolyn Parker was yelling “he hit me!” When asked where she was hit, Parker answered “well I don’t know, he’s been hitting me all day,” according to the police affidavit. The apartment was also covered in spaghetti.

“The walls had smears of pasta sauce, as well as ground meat, and pasta on the carpet,” the officer said. Parker then called someone on her cell phone telling her “mom” that her boyfriend has “a history of domestic violence, so he needs to go,” according to the report.

“He’s been hitting me all day, so I threw my noodles at him,” Parker told police.

The man pointed out several items around the residence that were broken by Parker during the day, stating she was angry about their “financial issues,” according to the report.

“Those items included their bedroom door, smashed drywall along the bedroom walls, shattered TV screen in the living room, and food scattered along the floors,” police said.

When asked if he became physical with Parker, the man stood up with his walker and explained he just suffered from a stroke a few weeks ago and is in “no shape of getting physical with anyone,” according to the affidavit.

Parker was arrested for Battery Domestic Violence and transported to the Brevard County Jail.

The man told police that he was going to get some “peace now that she’s gone,” the report said.
