A man was nearly knifed by his own brother because he ate too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, according to police reports in Iowa.
Des Moines Police said that a man is facing assault charges after he allegedly threatened his brother, who rebuked him for eating six peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in a short time.
The brothers, both in their 50s, got into a heated dispute on Friday, at their home.
Jerome Davis initially made and consumed three sandwiches and then made three more within the next hour, his brother told police. His brother said that eating six sandwiches was way over the top so he confronted his brother about overeating.
“Both the victim and the suspect began shouting at each other about being lazy and eating,” a police report stated.
Davis then pulled a knife and held it to his brother’s face, threatening to cut him.
When police arrived they seized two knives. Davis told officers that he made threats against his brother because he didn’t mind his own business.
Davis was charged with domestic violence with a weapon and was jailed.
