It’s unbelievable, but football and chicken wings CAN be a dangerous combination!
At least it was for one family, when an argument broke out during the 2016 NFL Superbowl.
As reported by AL.com, while Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Chris Martin were on stage, a 77 year-old Alabama man shot his own adult son when they were both apparently fighting over the last chicken wing. As the father’s wife tried to unsuccessfully separate the two, daddy (John Carver) pulled his gun and shot his son in the chest. Shockingly (and thankfully), the son survived the shooting.
The father was charged and convicted of first degree domestic violence and is scheduled to be sentenced this November. He could be facing up to 20 years in prison for the attack.
So with the NFL season upon us, let’s cover all our bases and make sure we have PLENTY of chicken wings on hand.
I think the real lesson for this particular mom, is to always be sure to have an extra pizza or two standing by on the kitchen sidelines from now on.
