Family Argument Over Mac And Cheese Ends In Assault And Battery

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A 20-year-old South Carolina man was arrested for assault on Sunday after he argued with his father over macaroni and cheese.

Brian Rossi, 54, told sheriff’s deputies he was just “trying to make some macaroni and cheese for dinner” when he “discovered that there was only pasta and no more cheese packets.”

When he told his son Alex Rossi to stop using all the cheese packets, a heated argument ensued.

Brian Rossi says his son “ran after him and began to punch him in the face and head.”

The police report says Alex “eventually took Brian to the ground and continued to hit him.”

When deputies arrived at the home, “Brian had a fresh laceration beneath his left eye with bruising and swelling.”

His son Alex had no visible injuries.

Alex admitted he was arguing with his father over macaroni and cheese and that he had punched his father in the face, “but that Brian also punched him in the face.”

He was arrested for misdemeanor assault and battery and booked into county jail. He is being held in lieu of $1,097 bond.
