A fight during a search for missing macaroni and cheese left one Deltona sibling with a stab wound to the stomach, Volusia deputies said.
The two brothers, Edward Zipperer, 47, and Randy Zipperer, 49, got into an argument after the younger brother spilled a beer belonging to Randy Zipperer while looking for missing mac and cheese, investigating deputies said.
The incident occurred at a Danforth Avenue home Tuesday at 10:12 p.m., deputies said. Deputies were called to the home where they found Randy Zipperer standing in the front yard.
He immediately started apologizing to deputies saying everything was an accident and that he did not mean to hurt his brother, an arrest report shows. Randy Zipperer said he became upset with his brother and said, “I poked him a little with the knife but I didn’t mean to,” the report shows.
A witness, William Senn, told deputies Randy Zipperer got angry because he could not find his macaroni and cheese. Edward Zipperer went to help his brother look for the food and during the search knocked over a beer belonging to Randy Zipperer, Senn told deputies.
The brothers then got into an argument during which Randy Zipperer got a knife from the kitchen and started swinging it at his brother. He managed to wound his brother in the stomach, deputies said.
Deputies found a small puncture wound on the stomach of Edward Zipperer and also found blood spots leading from the kitchen to the bedroom. Deputies located the 6-inch knife with blood on the tip, the report said. Randy Zipperer was charged with aggravated battery and obstructing an officer without violence.
