Making sandwiches for mom is serious business,apparently. If you don’t believe me, maybe you’ll believe 49-year-old Anthony Pilla, who found it necessary to pull a gun on his brother while the 2 argued over that very thing.
The incident started when Pilla and his brother were in the kitchen of the East Main Street home and argued about a sandwich for their mother, who lives in the house with Anthony, according to an affidavit filed in Superior Court.
The argument escalated to the point where the brother threw his cap and glasses at Anthony, the affidavit said.
Anthony then went into the basement and returned with a loaded shotgun, a Remington 1100 LW .41 caliber, the affidavit said.
The brothers wrestled, Anthony dropped the shotgun and their mother picked it up and took it out of the house, according to the affidavit.
The mother told police that Anthony pointed the shotgun at his brother. Police found the shotgun loaded with one live round and the safety off, the affidavit said.
Pilla told police that his plan was to scare his brother and that while he new the gun was loaded, he thought the safety was on. Yeah, because that makes things so much better.
Pilla is currently jailed in lieu of $50000 bail on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
