A 64-year-old Kentucky man is accused of grabbing his gun and shooting his roommate in the ass over a Hot Pocket sandwich — or lack of said sangie, as it were. Apparently, the roommate had dared to eat the last "four cheese pizza" snack, which angered gun-owner Clifton Williams immensely.
Upon finding the empty frozen-food box, Williams allegedly fell into a rage, at first throwing tiles at his roomie. But when that only caused the roommate to fight back and then walk away, the hungry gentleman reportedly took matters (as in his gun) into his own hand.
From NBC News:
