RE: Spinosaurs as what?

Or perhaps spinosaurs didn't fish at all and those remains of Baryonyx found with fish on its gut where of an subadult(?) animal that ate beached fish and got a a fish spine or a fish jammed in its throat and died of suffocation (I understand that the Cryolophosaurus individual died in a similar way, with prosauropod bone).

I've heard this "_Cryolophosaurus_-choked-on-a-prosauropod-bone" before, but I don't know where this originally came from. The original Hammer and Hickerson (1994) article makes no mention of this, aside from the preservation of prosauropod bones near the _Crylophosaurus_ type material. It reminds me of the discredited "_Seismosaurus_-choked-on-a-rock" idea that was circulating for a while.
