Fight over food leads to stabbing


A Nashville man is accused of assaulting his stepfather after an argument over what was served for dinner.

Police say the victim broke a plate and kicked furniture because he did not like the food his wife cooked.

The man's stepson allegedly attacked him with a knife, cutting his face and the left side of his body.

The victim claims his stepson also bit him on the left shoulder during the fight.

The stepfather also bit his stepson in defense, but did not pursue him after the assault.

The stepson was arrested and is facing a felony aggravated assault charge in Davidson County.

His stepfather decided not to press charges.
