HOBE SOUND, Fla. - Deborah Frances Benafield apparently does not like being called "Debbie Cakes."
That's one observation that could be made after the 21-year-old woman's arrest in a Sept. 8 incident involving her fiancée, a 23-year-old woman, according to recently released Martin County Sheriff's records.
Deputies about 3:40 a.m. went to the area of Southeast Bayberry Terrace and Southeast Gomez Avenue in Hobe Sound and heard a woman yelling in the backyard of an address in the 8600 block of Southeast Bayberry Terrace.
They met a 23-year-old woman who said she and her fiancée -- Benafield -- had argued. The 23-year-old woman said that she, Benafield and a man were inside.
"Deborah was angry at (her fiancée) because (her fiancée) called her 'Debbie Cakes,' she hit (her fiancée) in the back of the head . . . approximately four times, but she was not injured," an affidavit states.
The man said he saw Benafield hit her fiancée, but he apparently made no mention of "Debbie Cakes."
Benafield, meanwhile, said she didn't recall what happened because she "blacks out" when angry.
Being called "Debbie Cakes" might make some angry, but being given Little Debbie cakes makes others happy.
Little Debbie snack cakes, a staple of school lunch boxes nationwide for decades, come in dozens of varieties, including Oatmeal Crème Pies, Star Crunch Cosmic Snacks and Devil Squares.
One of Elvis Presley's favorite snacks was Little Debbie Fudge Brownies, while Oatmeal Crème Pies are consumed daily by University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban, the Little Debbie website states.
The affidavit didn't state whether the "Debbie Cakes" spat will impact the pending nuptials.
Benafield, of the 8600 block of Southeast Bayberry Terrace in Hobe Sound, was arrested on a domestic battery charge.
