Ohio Man Arrested After Allegedly Hitting Woman With Pizza « CBS Pittsburgh

 

BROOKFIELD, Ohio (KDKA) — An Ohio man is facing charges after he allegedly screamed at a woman and hit her in the face with a pizza Wednesday.

 WKBN reports when officers arrived at the Masury home early Wednesday morning, they heard yelling inside, and when an officer tried to open the door, 24-year-old Kenneth Evans slammed it shut.

 

Police said Evans was screaming, belligerent and highly intoxicated, and the house was “trashed.”

Evans told police he had been arguing with a woman and flipped over a couch, but did not touch her.

According to WKBN, the woman told police Evans started screaming at her while she was driving him home, repeatedly pushed her head while she was driving and, at one point, hit her in the face with a pizza.

The woman said when they arrived at the home, Evans tried to fight a neighbor, threw tires into the road and smashed a mailbox.

WKBN says police arrested Evans on domestic violence charges and took him to the Trumbull County Jail, where authorities repeatedly told him to “stop boxing the wall.”

“Rick will be attending the rally and will be happy to say a few words in support of protecting our Second Amendment rights,” campaign spokeswoman Caitlin Carlisle said Wednesday in a statement.

Food allergies may be linked to baby wipes, study says

Does your child suffer from food allergies? Baby wipes may be the cause, according to a new report.

Researchers from Northwestern University recently conducted a study, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, to determine the environmental and genetic factors associated with the allergy.

To do so, they examined clinical evidence on food allergies. They learned that 35 percent of those with them have three gene mutations that diminish the skin’s barrier, which can expose the body to allergens.

However, they learned not everyone with the mutations develop food allergies. After exposing mice with similar mutations to food allergens like peanuts, they discovered the nuts alone had no effect.

“Then I thought about what are babies exposed to,” lead author Joan Cook-Mills said in a statement. “They are exposed to environmental allergens in dust in a home. They may not be eating food allergens as a newborn, but they are getting them on their skin. Say a sibling with peanut butter on her face kisses the baby. Or a parent is preparing food with peanuts and then handles the baby.”
