Florida Teenager Arrested For Potato Attack On His Stepsister

A Florida teenager is accused of striking his stepsister in the head with a thrown potato after she failed to pay him enough attention, cops say.

Tyler Scott Parker, 18, was busted Sunday afternoon on a domestic battery charge following a spud tossing incident at his family’s Tampa-area residence.

Parker, seen at right, began yelling at the victim and threatened to throw a potato at her if she “did not stop ignoring him,” according to a criminal complaint.

After Parker’s stepsister “replied to the defendant,” he allegedly threw the potato, which struck his kin in the head. Parker was subsequently arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.

The victim does not appear to have been injured in the potato attack.
