Wife Attacks Husband After Finding Copies of The Onion in Car

Victim tells police his wife considers the papers "pornography" and it has caused issues in their marriage.

The Shepherd Express and The Onion are iconic Wisconsin publications well known for their alternative views and humor.

However, when one man's wife found issues of those two papers in his trunk, it incited an incident that could very well be mistaken for a headline in The Onion.

A 56-year-old Menomonee Falls woman is facing charges after she allegedly attacked her husband for having copies of the Shepherd Express and The Onion in the trunk of his car.

Lynne M. Rasbornik was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Monday with one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse. If convicted, she faces up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On May 19, the victim’s car was parked in their driveway in the N5100 block of Dolphin Drive and Rasbornik was going through the trunk when she found copies of the newspapers. She came into the house and confronted her husband about the papers then attacking him.

The man said his wife considers the publications “pornography” and the issue has been around in their marriage before.

The victim was able to get Rasbornik to the ground, then he wanted to leave, so he let her go and went to get his son’s guitar that he was going to borrow. Rasbornik then grabbed a vase and tried to throw it at her husband, but he was able to grab her arms and stop her.

Rasbornik began to flail her arms and scream before running out of the house to the victim’s car and take his cell phone, a notebook with his driver’s license and credit card inside, a Starbucks gift card and his handicapped placard.

While talking with a police officer, Rasbornik said her husband had attacked her, but she kept scratching and poking herself to make injuries more apparent. The officer told her to stop, but once taken in for booking she continued to scratch and twist her arms to make it appear that she was injured.

She will make her initial appearance in court Aug. 7.
