Mom Barely Avoids Injury from Meat Beater

Man arrested in prime-rib assault

Assault with a deadly weapon -- a 3-pound frozen prime rib -- landed a 40-year-old La Jolla man in jail Friday night.

The man's 67-year-old mother called San Diego police at 9 p.m. saying she was afraid of her son, who was at their home on Bird Rock Avenue, Officer Aaron Frodente said.

The two had been arguing and when the mother ordered her son out of the house, he allegedly tossed a cup of water in her face, hurled the frozen hunk of meat at her -- narrowly missing her head -- and broke the refrigerator door and a bedroon door.

Frodente said when he and his partner, Officer Jason Aguilar, arrived at the house, the son and a visiting friend tried to hide in the garage. The son was jailed on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse and vandalism. His friend, a 35-year-old parolee, was jailed on a warrant.
