Man turns violent over baked chicken

He assaulted his family because he wanted fried chicken

A southwestern Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges he fought with his son and daughter-in-law after he was served chicken that was baked, when he wanted it fried.

State police have charged 45-year-old George Rhome, of Point Marion, with simple assault and harassment charges because they say the argument became physical about 10.15 pm. Sunday.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Rhome. He faces a preliminary hearing on the charges Thursday and remained in the Fayette County Prison on Wednesday unable to post $20,000 bond.

Police say they also wound up arresting the victims on unspecified bench warrants out of Greene County. Police haven't released their names or the charges they face.

The incident occurred in Point Marion, a tiny borough on the West Virginia border, about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh.
