Sweets turned sour early last Saturday in Florida when a pregnant woman and her brother were arrested following a cupcake fight, Fox 5 reports. Police say 24-year-old Latanya Daugherty and 30-year-old Eddie Yaddow were arguing about who should punish her child when Daugherty threw cupcakes at her brother. Yaddow then allegedly wiped cupcake frosting in his sister's hair and kicked her in the stomach. The siblings were arrested after police were called to the home, and Daugherty was charged with misdemeanor battery domestic violence. Yaddow was charged with felony aggravated battery. According to the Smoking Gun, police determined Yaddow's reaction to being hit with cupcakes “exceeded a reasonable response in self defense" because he knew his sister was four to six weeks pregnant when he kicked her in the stomach.
