This wouldn’t be the first crazy Florida story that involved someone getting arrested over throwing food. A Tarpon Springs woman was arrested on Sunday (August 7) after “beefing” it out with her boyfriend. She is facing domestic assault charges after allegedly throwing a raw steak at her partner during a fight. The complaint notes that the steak was identified as a weapon, although it wasn’t confiscated at the scene by police.

Rochelle Wright, 42, and the male victim were arguing and under the influence when the “assault” took place. According to reports, Wright was angry at the victim and the steak went flying. She missed her target and only ended up hitting his chair that he was occupying and a nearby wall. When the police questioned her about the incident she said she was “tired of his behavior and their arguing.”

Wright was booked at the Pinellas County jail on a misdemeanor charge and has been released since.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a crazy story like this. Just last month a man faced felony charges for throwing hot dogs at a police officer.


5 Things to Know About the 2022 Florida Python Challenge

They’ve been a problem for Florida for decades. Burmese pythons are not native to Florida. They are found in India, lower China, the Malay Peninsula and some islands of the East Indies. But pythons that have been released since the 1980s into the Everglades have messed up the ecosystem by feeding on everything from eggs to deer. The Florida Python Challenge offers up some big cash to would-be python hunters who can help rid the Everglades of the snakes that can grow to 20 feet long.

  • 2022 Dates

    The Florida Python Challenge began at 8am Friday morning and runs through Sunday, August 14.

  • Registration

    You do need to register and there’s a $25 entry fee that goes to the Fish & Wildlife Foundation. You also need to take a training quiz and score at least 85%. A Florida hunting license is NOT required.

  • Python Meat

    It’s not illegal to eat python meat, but they do warn you that some pythons that have been removed from the Everglades have had high amounts of mercury.

  • Who Can Enter

    You don’t need to be a Florida resident to participate. Those under 18 can also participate but will need parental permission.


  • Prizes

    Thousands of dollars in prize money are up for grabs. The top prize is $2,500 for the one who catches the most. If you catch the longest python, you score $1,500. Those from the military are eligible for extra cash prizes up to $2,000.
