An Alabama man has been arrested after allegedly assaulting his roommate for failing to properly seal a box of Cap'n Crunch cereal, which had gone stale.
Fifty-two year-old Duane Barry Smith was charged for domestic violence charges after he allegedly assaulted a man he shares a residence with in Moundville, a small town outside Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Police say Smith got upset with his roommate after he discovered the Cap'n Crunch cereal had gone stale, blaming the man for failing to properly seal the cereal box. Smith was especially angry since he is missing teeth, making it difficult to eat.
At one point, Smith demanded the roommate remove his dentures to see what it was like try and consume the stale cereal. When he refused, Smith began hitting him with a laptop charger cord. Police say the victim suffered several injuries to his face, hand and arm.
A domestic violence misdemeanor conviction in Alabama can carry a sentence ranging from a month to a year in jail.
