Warrant: Wife brings out shotgun after man dumps dinner
Austin Statesman ^ | March 29, 2012 | Claire Osborn

Posted on 03/29/2012 4:09:44 PM PDT by cweese

Police have charged a Leander woman after they said she threatened her husband with a loaded shotgun for pouring the meal she made down the drain, according to an arrest warrant. melissa.jpg

Melissa Leigh Migliore, 38, seen at right, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to an arrest warrant. Her husband, William Migliore, told police that he had been arguing with her while she was making dinner Tuesday at their house on Tablerock Circle in Leander, the warrant said.

He said he entered the bedroom where she was lying down and told her that he had poured the meal down the sink and that she owed him an apology, the warrant said.

A short time later, Melissa Migliore stepped out of the bedroom carrying a shotgun, walked down the hallway, loaded the gun and pointed it at him, according to the warrant. She told him he had 30 seconds to leave the house or she would shoot him, the warrant said.

He left the house with his son and called 911, said the warrant. When police arrived, they found aloaded shotgun leaning against a bedroom wall buckshot rounds on the ground next to the gun, the warrant said.

Melissa Migliore, who was at the house, told police that her husband was being verbally abusive and knocking things around while they were arguing and she was making dinner, according to the warrant.

She said that when her husband told her that he had dumped the soup in the sink, she “had had enough, grabbed her shotgun and loaded it,” the warrant said.

She said she pointed the weapon toward the ceiling and told her husband to leave, according to the warrant. Melissa Migliore was arrested and later released from the Williamson County Jail after posting bond on a $20,000 bail.

I guess the husband doesn't like soup.

The jury is still deliberating.

Maybe with a nice makeup job she’d be a better cook.

Was there any comment from the drain regarding the meal? (ducking and running)

We have a soup contest here in Mount Carmel Utah every September. Last year I was the winner. One man among fifteen women entries. All the women were uglier than this little cutie so she might have a chance. LOL /s

And to think, if SCOTUS doesn’t kill the mandate, gov’t can force us to eat broccoli. Prolly go to jail for pouring it down the drain.

It might have been really bad soup. I’ve heard of shotgun weddings but never shotgun soup slurping.

I am getting pretty tired of very poor English in what counts for today’s ‘journalism’.

“The gun was leaning on the bedroom wall.” But the shells were found on ‘THE GROUND’, next to the gun.

EITHER this woman has a bedroom that has no flooring, or the gun was outside, leaning against the outside bedroom wall.

GROUND means one thing!!!

FLOOR means something entirely different!!

Listen carefully to people talking today—even anchors on TV, and you will be amazed how many times these 2 words are misused!!

I am very glad that I went to a one-room school & I learned the difference.

Unless she's a very horrible cook, why go to the extreme of disposing of her work and then demand an apology? Not to mention wasting food that was likely going to feed his son as well.

The guy sounds like an immature jerk who deserves some buckshot in his behind.

I know that some women take it hard when their cooking efforts are not appreciated, but this may be going a little too far.

Perhaps she was just having a bad day.

What’s most amazing is that we’ve made it past the first 10 comments without a male FReeper pointing out that “Hey, at least she was in the kitchen”.

No offense to the other posters but your post is the best.

You know wives put effort into fixing meals. This dumbo obviously didn’t appreciate it.

Some years ago, my former husband didn’t bother to come home for dinner as he was out with the guys, drinking. I had fixed a great meal; mashed potatoes, pork chops, gravy etc the whole ball of wax INCLUDING hot bread.

He didn’t show up and after 5 hours or so, I put it all in one pan, mixed accordingly, went a few blocks, found his car and ...well lets say he had a surprise when he jumped in the drivers seat that nite.

Effort=respect.

Obviously this rube didn’t get it.

This video shows a woman getting dragged by a moped/scooter. The top rated comment for the video is... "Draggin' her a$$ all the way back to the kitchen!" As for the lady in the posted story could she have just made him a sandwich? Maybe throw in his favorite beer and he would have been just dandy!

You also know that effort varies greatly across all wives, with some believing opening the can was ‘great effort’ on their part.

I can see getting into an argument about being ungrateful, but for you to write what you did justifying a woman holding a loaded shotgun at a spouse and having no problem with what she did, sorry, total fail there.

Just invert the man and woman in the story and see if you feel the man pointing the shotgun at the wife for not being rewpectful enough gets your seal of approval.

Hey I wasn’t justifying her actions but can clearly relate. Maybe I should have condemned her. Would that have satisfied you?

And some men, no matter if the woman killed, cleaned and cooked the evenings meal, baked the bread from scratch etc would still be unhappy. He sounded like one of those inmature types, instead of being grateful for even having food to eat.

We all CA relate to someone close to us being ungrateful. Taking it to pointing a deadly weapon at the other and and saying leave or I’ll kill you is something most women regard when the man does it, as domestic abuse nor acceptable under any circumstances. Not so much for you when the woman does it.

And I know you didn’t condemn her, you were sympathizingwith her as you could “relate” to her.

But if you’d criticize a man for doing the exact same thing, but not her, you’re a double-standard hypocrite.
