Lucie County jail, told sheriff’s investigators Sept. 9 that fellow inmate Adam Dowling, 31, asked him if he wanted a piece of cheese.
Rogers said he did want the cheese, but didn’t want Dowling to touch it.
This evidently cheesed off Dowling because Rogers said Dowling threw the cheese on Rogers’ tray.
Rogers said Dowling tossed his food tray on Rogers, who slapped Dowling in the face.
Meanwhile, Dowling said “he plea(d)s the fifth until he can talk, not (to) a lawyer but to the FBI.”
It’s unclear whether the FBI investigates cheese throwing incidents.
Dowling then said Rogers swiped his food. Dowling also said he threw the cheese, the variety of which was not specified, at Rogers.
Dowling finally said he threw a tray of food at Rogers after Rogers kept yelling at him.
Rogers, who has prior battery convictions, was arrested on two felony charges, while Dowling was arrested on a single felony charge and a single misdemeanor charge.
