TCPalm It was after the mashed potatoes and gravy went flying that the filet knife came out. At least, that’s what the fiance of Kimberly Francisco, 42, told Sebastian police Oct. 13 following an apparent domestic donnybrook in the 1200 block of Indian River Drive, according to a recently released arrest affidavit. Francisco’s fiance said that he and Francisco were in a verbal dispute when Francisco “began throwing hot mashed potatoes and gravy at him.” Hot mashed potatoes and gravy generally are not viewed as aerodynamic, but they are tasty. Francisco’s fiance said Francisco then got a filet knife and tried to stab him. He said he disarmed Francisco and put the edged weapon behind a chair. Meanwhile, Francisco denied tossing the potatoes, saying the spuds fell. She also said she didn’t try to stab her fiance. “Upon check of the residence, I noticed food, to include mashed potatoes, appeared to be thrown around the kitchen area,” an affidavit states. Francisco, of the 1200 block of Indian River Drive in Sebastian, was arrested on a charge that some might not describe as being small potatoes: felony aggravated assault with deadly weapon – domestic violence.
I think that this is a bit of an overreaction by Kimberly Francisco’s fiancé here, if someone is throwing hot mashed potatoes and gravy at you, you either grab a utensil and try to salvage the food or you throw food back and start a food fight. This is a classic case of “he said, she said” though, as he says that she threw mashed potatoes at him and tried to stab him to death, she says that the mashed potatoes simply fell and that she never attempted to stab him. Clearly the cops believed him, because she has been charged with aggravated felony assault with a deadly weapon, and the cops are not talking about the mashed potatoes and gravy.
