Salisbury man charged following apparent birthday cake assault

A Salisbury man was arrested over the weekend, after he reportedly got into a fight over cake.

The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office says on Saturday, just before 9:30 PM, a Deputy responded to reports of a fight at a home on Meadowwood Drive in Salisbury. Once on scene, the Deputy apparently found two people arguing loudly, and then reportedly witnessed 62-year-old John Terry assault the other person. Sheriff’s Office says the Deputy found out that the fight was over a birthday cake.

Terry was arrested, and charged with assault 2nd degree. After an initial appearance with the District Court Commissioner, Terry was released on a $15,000 unsecured bond.
