WTF News: Man Beats Up Father Over Mac N’ Cheese

A South Carolina man beat up his father over a missing packet of powdered cheese for boxed macaroni.

Alex Rossi, 20, of South Carolina, allegedly beat down his 54-year-old father over an argument they had over instant macaroni and cheese. A powdered cheese packet that creates the cheesiness went missing and all hell broke loose.

Via the NY Daily News:
Alex Rossi, 20, allegedly freaked out after his 54-year-old pop Brian yelled at him for finishing off the cheese he wanted to use in the dish.

Deputies claim the young buck “ran after his dad and began to punch him in the face and head.”

He then “eventually took his father to the ground and continued to hit him.”

When officers arrived at the pair’s Spartanburg home, they saw that “Brian had a fresh laceration beneath his left eye with bruising and swelling.”

The Smoking Gun reports that, during questioning, the younger Rossi confessed to punching his father in the face.

But he also claimed that he’d been hit, too.

The son was arrested for misdemeanor assault and battery.
