A Des Moines man went to jail Wednesday afternoon for allegedly throwing an onion at his wife.The next time that you hear that some man is in jail for domestic violence, remember that it might be something really trivial.
The police report begins: "(The victim) states her husband had been drinking and they got into an argument."
James Izzolena, 54, of 3515 Sheridan Ave., was charged with domestic assault causing injury. Police said he became upset with his wife, Nicole Izzolena, 27, and tossed an onion at her, striking her in the back of the head.
She told police it made her head hurt. James Izzolena admitted throwing the onion, police said, but he claimed he did not intend to hit her with it. He was being held without bond pending a court appearance today.
