An East Naples woman buttered up her roommate in a bad way, according to Collier deputies. She is accused of throwing butter at him after an argument over food occured.

Dawn Elizabeth Rhash, 49, of the 2900 block of Popular Street, was arrested by Collier deputies at home.

According to a Collier County Sheriff’s Office report:

When deputies arrived at the victim’s residence he stated that Rhash and him were having an argument about what food in the kitchen was hers and what was his. Rhash then threw butter at him striking him in the leg.

When deputies spoke with Rhash she told them she had been drinking vodka. She was also uncooperative and repeatedly interrupted the deputies.

Rhash denied throwing the butter.

Are you kidding me?? I have to seriously wonder about proper procedure. There was an incident some time ago where a woman was being battered (and I mean BEAT) by her husband, she feared telling. Her family stepped in and after not being able to get to her behind a locked door hearing him beating her and her begging for him to stop CCSO came. This was the 3rd call there that night. It took several deputies to hold this man down after they got inside and then still did not arrest him.

End of story, womans grandfather was stabbed in the neck by this thug later that night and fortunately survived. But the deputies felt he was no threat. Now I see where the woman with the butter would surely be an absolute monster and far more deadly.

Wow, get your act together please!! No wonder people that are battered (for real) are afraid to come forward!!

If you consider the long term effect from cholesterol absorption, they could upgrade the charge to attempted murder.

Sure hope the victim pulls through after such a traumatic assault.

Great use of the police and judicial resources...did this person really need to be arrested? Now we are paying for this moron, what ever happened to just yelling at the two idiots, and tell them to stop or if you have to come back their life will be miserable from here on out.

Gitmo? UppeR US fishhead!

Maybe instead of GITMO you clowns need to think of moving the 'priszors' (created by the repubs as a distraction) to the soon to be empty Henry Co jail.

Maybe he spent his "bread" on the butter and it was his. I hope everything "churns" out ok for the victim.

Can you imagine calling 911, my friend threw butter at my leg, operator should have responded, so what, throw it back at him and hung up. Should have been arrested for misuse of 911. Insane!!
