Chicken Leg With Bite Taken Out Of It Leads To Crowbar Attack

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Ohio say a man allegedly beat his brother with a crowbar during a dispute about a piece of fried chicken with a bite taken out of it.


The alleged victim, Thomas Morris, 41, of Akron told investigators the incident began Sunday afternoon when his 37-year-old brother Tony threw a piece of chicken at him at their mother`s home while they were both visiting, the Akron Beacon Journal reported Wednesday.

The elder brother, who was treated at a local hospital, said Tony Morris fled after he got away and retrieved a shovel from a neighbor`s house.

Police said they were called to the home by the mother, who admitted chomping on the piece of chicken in question."


The mother should be ashamed of herself, taking a bite out of a piece of fried chicken and then placing it back in the frying pan is disgusting.

The brother who found the piece of chicken with a chunk missing should have simply tossed the suspect piece of chicken into the garbage can instead of commencing World War III.

It`s utterly ridiculous that brothers would attack each other with a shovel and a crowbar over a piece of fried chicken. 
If I`m ever at their house for dinner and one of the brothers tells me to pass the mashed potatoes I will readily comply, let he mash my head in with a ladle.
