If I told you that a hunt for some missing macaroni and cheese and a spilled beer lead to a knife in the gut from one brother to another, what state would you guess this happened in? I’ll give you a hint. It starts with F and ends with lorida.
A witness told deputies in Volusia County, Fla. that Randy and his brother, 47-year-old Edward Zipperer, started arguing over Randy’s missing macaroni and cheese, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported. His younger brother helped him look, but during the mac-hunt, Edward knocked over a beer Randy had been drinking.
The spill allegedly made Randy even angrier, and deputies say he began waving around a knife that wound up inserted in his brother’s stomach.
The elder Zipperer didn’t admit to the stabbing when police arrived, but did offer that “I poked him a little with the knife, but I didn’t mean to.”
That was close enough for the authorities, who charged him with aggravated battery and obstructing an officer without violence.
