A Maryland man is facing some serious grilling from cops after he had a meltdown — and fired a handgun at his wife for taking a bite of his grilled cheese sandwich.

Daniel Brian Blackwell retreated to his basement as his wife was in the middle of putting dinner on the table, because he was angry that she’d nibbled on the sandwich she made for him. Blackwell didn’t just sulk quietly below ground, though: He fired three rounds through the floor, damaging his home’s kitchen without hitting his spouse.

She called 911 for help and ran out of the house with the couple’s kids, leading to a three-hour standoff that ended peacefully. According to a police report, the 55-year-old Blackwell “was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation to see why this enraged him so much about this grilled cheese sandwich.” (WTVR)
