Elyria Police responded to a domestic violence dispute involving taquitos on July 5.

According to a police report, Randy Shumway Jr. threw a plate of hot taquitos on a woman following an argument. The plate and hot grease hit the victim's left arm. The report says the woman then ran to a neighbor's house where she was able to call 911.

Shumway is also accused of becoming combative while in custody. Several corrections officers had to secure him into a restraint chair.

Shumay is charged with domestic violence and disrupting public service. He is being held without bond pending his appearance in court.
