A PITTSBURGH man faces charges after police say he threw hard-boiled eggs at his girlfriend during an Easter egg decorating party, then tried to attack police.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported yesterday that Aaron Goempel, 27, was arrested on simple- and aggravated-assault charges.
Police say they responded to a fight call to find a woman with a red and swollen right eye. She told police Goempel accused her of cheating before starting to throw the eggs.
Authorities say that after police made their way past a makeshift barricade into a bedroom, Goempel reached for a row of knives and swords before he was subdued. They say he yelled racist obscenities at one officer and kicked another in the groin.
Court records don't indicate whether he has a defense attorney.
