A disagreement over mashed potatoes turned dangerous over the weekend when a victim said tempers escalated and a woman came at her with box cutters.
Shaquina S. Hill, 23, of Buffalo, New York, was charged with second-degree menacing and second-degree harassment as a result, city police said.
An 18-year-old woman told police she and Hill argued about mashed potatoes just before 9pm on Sunday and things escalated from there.
The younger woman told police Hill grabbed box cutters and waved them at her, then started throwing things at her, including a heavy ceramic vase and coffee table. She told police Hill also punched her in the chest.
