First it was the crazy a** “Ugly Betty” actor with the sword…..now this???
A Pennsylvania man who attacked his mom recently told police, once they arrived on the scene, that a Pepsi machine made him do it! (GTFOH!!!!!) Read the full story below……
A New Sewickley Township man told police that he assaulted his 68-year-old mother Tuesday because a Pepsi machine “made him” do it. David L. Huffman, 33, of 1024 Route 989, is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment. New Sewickley police were called to Huffman’s address at about 2 p.m. for an altercation involving Huffman and his mother, Ethel Huffman.
According to a criminal complaint filed in Freedom District Judge Edward Howe’s office by New Sewickley officer Gregory Carney, Daniel Huffman told police that his son was “flipping out” and had attacked his mother. Carney wrote that he and Police Chief Ron Leindecker found David Huffman in the kitchen. Ethel Huffman was found lying in a bed suffering from an apparent broken wrist.
Ethel Huffman’s wrist, Carney wrote, had an “obvious deformity.” She told police that she was arguing with her son when he threw her to the ground. Carney said he spoke to David Huffman, who claimed “that the Pepsi machine at Costco made him hurt his mother,” the officer wrote. David Huffman also said “he was mad at his mother because she smokes drugs,” Carney wrote.
David Huffman, Carney wrote, repeatedly apologized for his actions at the township police department. His mother was taken to UPMC Passavant hospital in Cranberry Township for treatment. After he was unable to post $10,000 bond set by Howe Tuesday, David Huffman was taken to the Beaver County Jail. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Dec. 7.
Huffman is the second New Sewickley man charged by township police with assaulting his mother in November. On Nov. 10, Joshua Crispino, 37, of 119 Brown Road, allegedly took too much cough syrup and rammed his mother’s head into the side of her house at 115 Brown Road before punching Big Knob Volunteer Department Assistant Fire Chief John Murtha when Murtha tried to treat Crispino’s injuries.
Crispino is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal mischief and two counts of harassment. He faces a Dec. 16 preliminary hearing.
