Richard Anthony Hessic (SLCSO)

A 31-year-old man is facing domestic battery charges for reportedly assaulting his girlfriend over cookies, Port St. Lucie police said.

Richard Anthony Hessic was upset that someone ate the last chocolate chip cookie and that his girlfriend of three years wasn't taking him seriously, according to police. She told police she didn't want to argue about something so petty, so she told him she'd buy more cookies.

She went to go try and take a shower, but Hessic followed her, police said. He felt like she was blowing him off, so he ripped down the shower curtain and punched her in the face.

He was going to leave the home until he was met by police as he was pulling out of the driveway.

Hessic was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail without incident.
