DELTONA, Fla., June 13 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a man accused of stabbing his brother during an argument about macaroni-and-cheese and beer.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said a witness told deputies Randy Zipperer, 49, became upset Tuesday at his Deltona home when he was unable to find his macaroni-and-cheese, so his 47-year-old brother helped him search for the food, WKMG-TV, Orlando, reported Thursday.

Zipperer's beer was accidentally knocked over by his brother during the search, leading the two men to argue, deputies said.

Zipperer allegedly stabbed his brother in the stomach with a kitchen knife during the argument, causing a small puncture wound.

Zipperer was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and obstructing an officer without violence.
