Waterville, Washington – A discussion over butter between a brother and sister reportedly turned ugly after one accused the other of assault. As reported by The Wenatchee World, the siblings got into an altercation over using butter versus margarine in macaroni and cheese, and the 21 year-old brother called the police on his 17 year-old sister whom he alleged attacked him with a sharp edged spatula.
Officer Carrie Knouf is quoted in the story as writing of the incident in a police report filed in Douglas County Superior Court, “They began to argue over the difference of real butter to margarine,” which escalated into a physical altercation.
The girl has reportedly been charged with fourth degree assault, and a warrant has been issued for her arrest due to a failure to show up for a court hearing.
