BRIDGEWATER — Police in New Jersey said a shotgun was brandished after two brothers argued about a sandwich for their mother.
Police said the argument began in the kitchen of Anthony Pilla’s Bridgewater house, where the mother lives. It escalated when Pilla’s brother threw his cap and glasses at the 49-year-old.
According to an affidavit, Pilla went to the basement and returned with a loaded shotgun. Police said the brothers wrestled, Pilla dropped the shotgun and their mother took it out of the house Wednesday.
Pilla is charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
Police did not release the name of his brother or say what kind of sandwich was at the center of the dispute
