DUNDALK, Maryland — Whatever you do, do NOT mess with this guy’s grilled cheese sandwich.
A Maryland man triggered an hours-long standoff with police after become enraged that someone took a bit out of his grilled cheese and firing a gun inside his house.
“Apparently, the man had made a grilled-cheese sandwich and either the wife or the daughter, we’re not exactly sure who, but somebody, one of the females in the house, took a bite of his sandwich, and apparently, that enraged him to the point that he fired shots in the house,” Baltimore County Police Cpl. Shawn Vinson said, according to WBAL-TV.
When police arrived in response to a call of a domestic dispute inside the house around 5 p.m, Sunday, they encountered the two women fleeing the building. They said the man had fired shots inside but that no one had been hurt.
The man then stayed shut up inside the home for several hours as cops tried to talk him into leaving.
“Our negotiation team spoke with the man and eventually talked him into coming out of the house and surrendering peacefully,” Vinson said.
The man was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated and charges are pending.
