A prison cook was arrested, charged and convicted of assault after breaking the eye sockets of an inmate because he complained about the way the chicken was prepared, prosecutors in Australia said.

35-year-old Matthew John Horner of Bunbury, was serving time in the Bunbury Regional Prison when the fight with the inmate occurred.

Horner was working as a cook at the prison when the victim, who worked as a cleaner, criticized the way he had made the chicken.

Specifically, the cleaner complained that there was too much tomato sauce on his chicken. The physical altercation soon followed, as a result of the argument.

The victim was taken to a hospital by prison guards to be treated for two broken eye sockets. Horner was sentenced at Bunbury Magistrate’s Court to seven months jail, which he will serve along with his current jail term.
