ORANGE CITY, Fla. -

Police say a central Florida woman nearly drowned when he husband held her face down in their dog's water bowl during an argument over frozen pizza.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the argument started as the couple sat down to watch TV Wednesday night and eat pizza. Richard Watson complained that the crust was raw and flung his plate into the front door. Debra Watson then tossed her plate on the floor.

Police say her husband tackled her and shoved her head into the dog bowl. Debra Watson broke free. But a police report says her husband tried to strangle her.

Richard Watson is charged with attempted murder and battery.

Police say a Volusia County man killed his roommate earlier this week during an argument over pork chops.
