Tooth lost, woman jailed in Vero Beach Pringles attack

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- A woman accused of conking her father with a Pringles can and knocking out a tooth was arrested on a battery charge, according to a recently released affidavit.

The purported potato crisp pummeling played out July 19 in Vero Beach as the father of Amanda Lynn Lozier, 26, told Indian River County Sheriff's investigators he and his daughter were arguing about her smoking cigarettes.

Lozier's father said Lozier came from the kitchen and struck him in the mouth with a Pringles can, which knocked out a tooth from his lower jaw. Lozier's father also said Lozier scratched his neck.

Pringles, which rhymes with jingles, are a thin, curved and rigid snack product stacked in a can. Pringles are potato crisps made beginning "with dried potatoes which have been cooked, mashed and dehydrated," the Pringles web site states. Potato crisps are not to be confused with potato chips, which lack the uniform dimensions of the average Pringle and which must start with whole potatoes.

The Pringles logo features a man with a red bow tie and an enormous mustache.

Meanwhile, Lozier said she was in her room and her father wouldn't leave her alone.

Described as "noticeably intoxicated," Lozier experienced difficulty in having a conversation.

The affidavit didn't specify whether the can actually contained Pringles, which are available in flavors including sour cream and onion, pizza, jalapeƱo and loaded baked potato.

Lozier, of the 400 block of 14th Place Southwest in Vero Beach, was arrested on a misdemeanor battery / domestic violence charge.
