Sandoval then reportedly became “aggressive” and threw a package of Oreo cookies at his wife, which hit her in the chest and caused her to fall, deputies said.

While the wife was on the ground, Sandoval allegedly put his hands on her throat, but he did not restrict her airway, authorities said.

The victim did not report the incident until Nov. 19 after her daughter urged her to press charges, police said.

According to the affidavit, police did not observe any “obvious injuries” to the woman.
