It’s bad for your breath, but a Connecticut man learned the hard way that garlic can also be hazardous to your health.
Raffaele Agovino has filed a $5 million lawsuit accusing his wife of battering and bruising him — all because he griped about an open jar of garlic in the fridge.
The 59-year-old real-estate developer claims in court papers that his estranged wife, Lidia, snapped in April 2015 after he “noticed the presence of garlic” in the icebox at home and told her it “had been left open.”
Lidia Agovino, 56, began “yelling, screaming, and/or harassing” Raffaele, and when he tried to walk away, she attacked him with a wine glass, the Manhattan federal court suit alleges
Speaking to The Post Saturday, Lidia Agovino said “yeah, we had a big fight and other things,” she said.
But she said the federal case was news to her.
