Ontario couple face domestic assault charges after chips and dip battle

LINDSAY, Ont. - There wasn't much beer left but apparently there was enough chip dip to go around at a home in eastern Ontario.

A Lindsay, Ont., couple are facing charges for allegedly assaulting each other with chips and dip.

Police say they were called early Friday to a home in the community west of Peterborough, where there had already been 15 previously documented domestic disputes.

When officers arrived at the scene of the disturbance just after 1 a.m., they found both people covered in chips and dip after apparently fighting over the last beer.

A 39-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman both face charges of domestic-related assault and will appear in court on March 28.

Their names were not released.
