A man from thens-Clarke County, Georgia, was arrested after an argument over a grilled cheese sandwich escalated into physical violence, according to police.
According to an Athens-Clarke County Police report, officers were called to the Candy Circle home of James DePaola, 55, and his wife on July 27, after he became upset over her using three slices of cheese instead of two when making that sandwich.
The report stated DePaola because “upset and animated,” acting as though he may hit her. Police said when she tried to call 911, he pulled the phone from the wall. The couple’s 12-year-old daughter was eventually able to call for police from a cell phone, according to the report.
DePaola later told police he didn’t want his wife to call 911 for such a "stupid" reason.
Two other children, ages 9 and 14, in addition to the girl who called 911, were home at the time of the incident. DePaola was charged with obstruction of a 911 call and criminal trespass/damage to property.
