Man facing charges after family fight over baked not fried chicken

Dinner time at a Pennsylvania home got out of hand when the man of the house decided that he didn’t like what was served. It was probably not just the baked rather than fried chicken that set George Rhome off. “He’s usually an easygoing guy,” says Rhome’s mother, Carolyn Rhome.

The dispute started in the kitchen of a home on Morgantown Street in Point Marion. Rhome’s daughter-in-law was cooking dinner. “They didn’t do it right and George got mad,” Rhome’s girlfriend, Anna Jaggi says. Rome’s mother says he was unhappy beginning with the peas and corn.

“It started over the vegetables because they usually put them in a bowl in the microwave,” Carolyn says. After the chicken was served, Rhome cried foul. “I think he was already mad about something. He said the chicken was dry,” Carolyn says. This is when matters got physical. “She picked up a chair and threw it at him and that’s what made him mad because she hit him,” Carolyn says.

The food fight spilled from the kitchen to the sidewalk drawing neighbours and police. Rhome was arrested and so were Jason and Dottie Jaggi, Rhome’s son and daughter-in-law. Rhome is in the Fayette County jail on charges of simple assault and harassment. Jason and Dottie Jaggi are now housed in the Greene County jail on charges unrelated to the incident. No one was hurt in the incident.

I don't care if people call me a crazy cat lady because I live alone with 3 of them and a dog. Nobody in my house ever complains about my cooking and we never fight or throw chairs or go to jail because the chicken is dry.
