Chandler police said Isidro Curiel, 37, was angry about 1:30 p.m. Monday because he did not like the taste of his food and he threw the spaghetti at his wife, striking the kitchen sink, while his children looked on, The Arizona Republic, Phoenix, reported Wednesday.
Curiel's wife said she tried to stop him from taking her cellphone when he left the apartment, but he smashed it on the ground.
Curiel was found at his parents' house and arrested. Police said his wife had taken out an order of protection against him last May and told officers they had recently moved in together because their relationship was "going good."
Curiel was charged with disorderly conduct, criminal damage and interfering with judicial proceedings by violating an order of protection.
