MELBETA, Neb., Oct. 4 (UPI) -- A Nebraska man accused of pushing his wife onto a bed and rubbing a sandwich in her face has been sentenced to five days in jail.

Larry Spurling, 50, of Melbeta pleaded no contest Monday to a charge of disturbing the peace stemming from the Sunday incident and was sentenced to five days in jail, KETV, Omaha, reported Thursday.

Spurling's wife, whose name was not reported, told police her husband was angry at her for "making him live in the county" and he was upset about "being bored since there is no place for him to walk."

She said he consumed three 24-ounce cans of a malt liquor with an 8 percent alcohol content during the argument and she eventually "got tired" of fighting and made herself a sandwich.

The woman said Spurling followed her into the bedroom, pulled her hair, pushed her onto the bed and rubbed the sandwich on her face.
