Senior citizen shoots roommate in buttocks for eating the last Hot Pocket, throws tiles during heated scuffle

A Louisville, Kentucky, man was arrested and charged with felony assault for shooting his roommate in the buttocks for eating the last Hot Pocket, a microwavable sandwich, according to NBC News.

Louisville Metro Police responded to a call on Sunday, May 21, 2023, after Clifton Williams allegedly shot his roommate following an argument, police documents revealed.

The roommate had eaten the last Hot Pocket, according to police. Upon the discovery, 64-year-old Williams and the roommate got into a physical altercation during which Williams allegedly began throwing tiles at the other man.

"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.

Williams then allegedly got a gun, followed the roommate outside, and shot him in the buttocks, the police document said.

The victim reportedly traveled a few blocks away to get help and was then taken to the University of Louisville Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The senior citizen entered a not-guilty plea according to Wave, and his bond was set at $7,500. Williams was also ordered not to have contact with his roommate and not to possess any firearms or other weapons.

An attorney for Williams did not respond to a request for comment.

"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 ass; I don't think anyone purposely shoots a man in the ass," he joked. "I think you might be aiming for a leg [or] the back," he added.

The crime could have dire repercussions for the Kentucky man, however. A person convicted of second-degree assault faces between five and 10 years in prison under Kentucky law. It is defined as a person who "intentionally causes physical injury to another person by means of a deadly weapon or a dangerous instrument."

Williams is scheduled to attend a preliminary court hearing on May 30, 2023. A person is considered to be a senior in the state of Kentucky if over the age of 60.
