LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Scripps News Lexington) — A Kentucky man is facing an assault charge after he allegedly shot his roommate for eating the last Hot Pocket.
Clifton E. Williams, 64, was arrested early Sunday and charged with assault in the second degree, according to a citation.
The citation states Williams became mad at his roommate for eating the last Hot Pocket and began throwing tiles.
The roommate said he “attempted to fight back by trying to beat his a**,” according to the citation.
Williams then went inside, grabbed a gun, and shot the roommate in the butt while the victim was trying to leave, authorities say.
Williams is prohibited from contacting the victim, who was taken to UofL Hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries. His bond was set at $7,500, reported the AP.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 30.
