Chicken Wing Assault

APRIL 10--A Florida Man allegedly struck his wife with a box of chicken wings during an argument about infidelity, an assault that left the victim splattered with hot sauce and her spouse behind bars on an assault charge, records show.

Police say that Robert Audette, 39, and his wife were arguing last night about Audette’s relationship with another woman when the dispute turned violent.

As alleged in an arrest affidavit, the victim took Audette’s phone, which prompted him to launch “a takeout box of wings” at her. The woman told police that some of the wings hit her “on her right shoulder and under her chin.”

Officers responding to the duo’s home in Wildwood, a city 50 miles northwest of Orlando, reported spotting “sauce from the wings” under the victim’s “chin/neck area” and on her shirt.

The victim told police that she subsequently locked herself in the bedroom--where the couple’s baby was sleeping--and “began an audio recording during this incident for her safety.”

When the woman would not open the door, Audette yelled, “I’m about to beat your fucking ass” and began “violently banging on the door which could clearly be heard on the audio recording,” the affidavit notes. “The bedroom door was observed to have been broken,” cops added.

During police questioning, Audette reportedly admitted that he “got mad and threw the wings,” but did not to intend to hit his wife with the chicken. He also denied threatening to beat the victim.

Audette was charged with domestic assault and booked into the Sumter County jail on the misdemeanor rap. He was released from custody this afternoon.

Seen above, Audette works as a real estate broker for the developer of The Villages retirement community. According to an online bio, Audette is a “former Marine...and man of God” who “understands the importance of family, faith and a healthy lifestyle.” Additionally, “Robbie’s strong faith in God and ‘What would Jesus do?’ mindset push him to help those in need or those less fortunate than he.” (2 pages)
