Husband Dies After Nintendo Switch Fight in Wendy’s Parking Lot

A Michigan woman, aged 44, was recently apprehended due to her involvement in the death of her spouse, who tragically lost his life in a Wendy’s parking lot after being thrown off the hood of her car. Vinnice Daianie Leon was officially charged with a moving violation resulting in death, linked to the demise of Robert B. Leon in March 2024, as per court documents.

Leon made her court appearance in Holland County District Court earlier this week for her arraignment and was subsequently released after posting a $1,000 bond. The unfortunate incident took place on March 25 around 12:35 p.m. at a Wendy’s on East 16th Street in Holland, Michigan, as reported by

The couple, along with their daughter, were in their 2009 Dodge Charger in the restaurant’s parking lot when a heated argument ensued. Robert Leon reportedly exited the vehicle, but as his wife attempted to leave the parking lot, he jumped onto the hood of the moving car. The fall resulted in a severe head injury, causing a brain bleed.

Robert Leon was rushed to Corewell Health Zeeland Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. In an interview with Grand Rapids Fox affiliate WXMI, Vinnice Leon shared more about the events leading up to the fatal incident. She expressed her disbelief and shock over the incident, emphasizing that she had no intention of causing harm to her husband.

According to Vinnice Leon, the argument originated from a disagreement over a recent purchase. She had ordered a Nintendo Switch gaming console, while her husband wanted a PlayStation 5. The disagreement escalated, with Robert Leon becoming increasingly aggressive, frightening their daughter and leading to a physical altercation.

As the situation worsened, Vinnice Leon stated that her husband exited the car, leaving her and their daughter alone in the vehicle. She claimed that he was so enraged that their daughter was pleading for her to escape from him, alleging that Robert Leon was attempting to break the driver’s side window.

Vinnice Leon asserted that she was merely trying to drive to a nearby parking lot to give her husband some time to calm down when he unexpectedly jumped onto the car. As she was pulling out, he fell off the hood, hitting his head, which led to his death due to an inoperable brain bleed.

The moving violation charge against Vinnice Leon is a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.
