Packed With a Punch, Snickers Really Satisfies: NYC Man Arrested for Candy Bar Assault

By Christopher Coble, Esq. on December 14, 2015 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

"You're not you when you're hungry," or so Snickers' latest slogan says. And one New York City man should've heeded they're advice. Instead, he shoved an uneaten Snickers bar in a stranger's face, and proceeded to pummel him in the Times Square subway station last week.

Victim Ian Sklarsky says attacker Eliexer Reyes was unprovoked when he shoved a Snickers candy bar in Sklarsky's mouth. Sklarsky asked Reyes what was wrong with him and Reyes responded with a flurry of punches. We're not sure what Reyes' calorie or blood sugar count was prior to the attack, but maybe if he had just eaten the candy bar, he might've felt better.

So if you're not feeling yourself, eat that Snickers instead of fighting with it and you may just stay out of jail.
