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.
