Kentucky Man Allegedly Shot His Roommate on the Bum After He Ate the Last Hot Pockets
Do you hate sharing your food and absolutely detest the idea of people eating the last piece of cake you saved for yourself in the fridge? Well, you aren't the only one who is sensitive about their food items. People have been feuding over food since ancient times. In some cases, these fights can be violent with people resorting to physical violence as well. One such incident from Louisville, Kentucky about a feud over food gone wrong will surely leave you in awe.
According to PEOPLE, a Kentucky man is in jail after he shot his roommate for consuming the final Hot Pocket in the house. Things took a turn for the worse when Clifton Williams, 64 allegedly started throwing tiles at his roommate after learning that he had devoured the last microwavable treat. Police reports revealed that Williams became upset at his roommate right after that and grabbed a gun to shoot at the unnamed roommate as he tried to leave. The bullet ended up hitting the victim's rear end, per WLKY.
The victim managed to move a few blocks ahead looking for help and then he was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries. Williams was taken into custody on the charges of assault and was told to not contact his roommate or possess any firearms. There is no information about Williams retaining an attorney to comment on his behalf or if he has entered a plea but he is due to appear in court on May 30, 2023.
Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time someone was injured in a fight that broke out over Hot Pockets. According to UNILAD, Nathaniel Mathis was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2017 after a case of fatal shooting over the savory snacks. According to the prosecutors, Mathis had given his bank card to his sister and her boyfriend Rodney Benton so they can buy some pepperoni Hot Pockets from the store. But the store had already sold out all the Hot Pockets and when the couple attempted to purchase other items instead, Mathis’ card was rejected.
As Mathis' sister tried to explain the situation to him, an ugly argument broke out which concluded with Mathis attacking Benton. “You know what’s going on,” Mathis went up to the car, yelled at Benton and shot him eight times before fleeing the crime scene. He was later arrested by cops and was found guilty of murder, possession of a firearm by a first-offender probationer and criminal damage to property. We hope people don't start killing others over a mere microwavable meal in the future when there are tons of individuals out there fighting for a better cause.
