SHEBOYGAN -- A Sheboygan man has been charged with battery and disorderly conduct after throwing a package of bacon at his mom.


Police were called around 8 p.m. Monday to an apartment on Carmen Avenue.

The woman told police her son, Thomas J. Winkel, 44, had hit her with a package of bacon. Police said they observed a one inch laceration on the left side of her face.


According to the criminal complaint, Winkel admitted he threw the package his mother because "she was pissing him off."


Winkel -- who lives with his mother -- admitted to drinking a six pack prior to returning home that night, the criminal complaint said.

An officer noted in the complaint that the man seemed to be intoxicated and showed no remorse toward his mother, saying he hopes "she rots in hell."
