We report on a lot of assault cases involving weird items like a Snickers bar, 7-Eleven Big Gulps, or a plate of spaghetti, and we can add a newer, much grosser item to the list - a used diaper.

After responding early yesterday to a reported domestic battery in St. Petersburg, Florida, police said.

Investigators found that a confrontation began when 18-year-old Damian Kasten began arguing with his brother about "ongoing domestic issues." Kasten, police say, is paralyzed, but “ambulatory by using his upper body.”

After Kasten damaged walls inside the home, he allegedly became aggressive toward his sibling and a witness and attempted to “throw items at them.” At that point, Kasten's brother and the witness  “lifted and carried the defendant outside for the safety of all” and called the police.

It was then that Kasten allegedly pulled off his diaper that had been soiled and threw it at his brother, striking him in the chest.

“Remnants of the diaper were seen on the front porch...and on the stomach of the victim,” a police officer noted.


No weapons were seized by police - because it was a diaper.

Kasten was booked into the county jail on a charge of domestic battery, but was released Tuesday afternoon on his own recognizance.

A judge has ordered Kasten to have no contact with his brother, and granted the accused man a one-time visit to his home in the presence of police, to retrieve his personal belongings.
