Senior Citizen Shoots Roommate After Eating Last Hot Pocket

A Kentucky man is facing assault charges after allegedly shooting his roommate for eating the last Hot Pocket. The incident happened on Saturday night in Louisville, where police say 64-year-old Clifton Williams became enraged when he discovered that his roommate had consumed the last of the frozen snacks.

According to police reports, Williams started throwing tiles at his roommate, who tried to leave the scene. Williams then grabbed a gun and followed him outside, where he shot him in the buttocks. The victim was able to get help from a nearby residence and was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“Mr. Williams got mad he ate the last Hot Pocket” and “began throwing tiles at him,” a police document stated. The victim allegedly “attempted to” fight back and also threatened Williams, but he left, the document reportedly stated.


“He gave a man a bullet to the buttocks,” radio host Charlamagne said on his “Donkey of the Day” segment. “I know that there might be a number of valid reasons you could shoot a man in the a**; I don’t think anyone purposely shoots a man in the a**,” he joked. “I think you might be aiming for a leg [or] the back,” he added.

Williams was arrested early Sunday and pleaded not guilty on Monday. He is being held on a $7,500 bond and has been ordered to have no contact with the victim. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of second-degree assault.

Oddly enough, this isn’t even the first time that people have gotten into a battle over the tasty microwavable treat. They have also been linked to several violent incidents in the past, such as a stabbing in Florida and a murder-suicide in California. People have no self-control anymore.
