A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he beat his wife with a package of frozen ground beef.
Fifty-one-year-old William Neugebauer, of Aliquippa, faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges including simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and public drunkenness.
The Beaver County Times reports police were called to Neugebauer's home for a report of a dispute with his wife about 5:45 p.m. Aug. 6. That's where police found Wendy Neugebauer suffering from swelling on her rib cage, where she told police her husband hit her with the meat.
Police say Neugebauer ran away, but they found him a half hour later when he returned home and arrested him. He remained jailed Friday unable to post $10,000 bond, according to online court documents which don't list an attorney for him.
