OK, but who's the real criminal here?

A 31-year-old employee at a Fallston, Maryland business is accused of attacking a fellow employee who ate one of his meatballs, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Cops say they were called to the scene at around 11:10 a.m. Thursday, after they say the man stabbed his lunch-pilfering coworker in the arm.

The victim was taken to a hospital but has since been discharged.

Harford County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Cristie told The Baltimore Sun that charges are pending.

It's starting to seem as if "comfort foods" are horribly misnamed and actually do nothing but incite violence. In January, an Iowa man was accused of pulling a knife on his brother during an argument about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Last year, a Florida man allegedly stabbed his younger brother after his macaroni and cheese went missing.
