A Greer public works commissioner threw key lime pie at his wife during a fight and was later arrested, according to police.
Greer police officers were called to the home of Perry Williams, 51, after his wife called 911 twice Saturday night.
Officers said when they arrived, Williams' wife had blood under her nose and was covered with key lime pie.
When police asked her what happened, she told police they had argued about whether key lime pie was a fruit or not, when some of it fell on Williams. The report said he became angry, throwing the pie at his wife.
Police said there was pie all over the floor in the living room and in the dining room.
Williams' wife told officers there had been domestic violence incidents in the past but she had never reported it.
After officers took her statement, police said she did not want to press charges, but they told her it was in the state's hands because of apparent physical injuries - a bloody nose and a scratch on her face.
She then ripped up the statement she had made and repeatedly told police it was a mistake she called them, the report said.
Williams turned himself in Tuesday night and was charged with criminal domestic violence. He was released from jail on bond.
According to the Greer Commission of Public Works website, Williams was elected to the board of commissioners in May 2009. The commission's general manager said he had no comment on the arrest.
