Police: Man pulled knife over chicken

Police in Florida said a man was arrested after he allegedly pulled a knife on his brother during an argument about chicken wings.

Investigators said Calvin Edwards, 48, of Fort Pierce was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery after the alleged Tuesday incident, TCPalm.com reported Thursday.

The arrest affidavit quotes Edwards' brother as saying he and his sibling were scuffling over chicken wings when Calvin pulled a small pocket knife and threatened to cut him. The brother, who said he was injured when Edwards scratched him on the wrist, said he backed down from the confrontation and called police.

Police said they have not found the knife.
