LYMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies said a Lyman man filed charges against his son after he was attacked in a fight about macaroni and cheese.

Deputies said they were called to the man's Hammett Store Road home about 5:30 p.m. Sunday where they spoke with the dad who said he was assaulted by his 20-year-old son, identified as Alex Rossi.

According to deputies, Rossi lives with his dad but does not contribute to the household. When his dad went to make some mac and cheese for dinner, the cheese packets were missing from the box, according to the sheriff's office report.

That's when he went to tell Rossi to stop using all of the cheese packets, deputies said.

The two exchanged a few words and when the dad walked back inside, he said Rossi ran after him and punched him in the face and head, deputies said.

The two ended up on the ground until the dad put his son in a headlock, deputies said.

When deputies arrived, they said they saw a bruise and cut on the man's face and though Rossi said he had a shiner, deputies said he did not have any visible injuries. Deputies said Rossi also had blood on his hand that was not his.

Deputies said the man said he wanted to file charges, so Rossi was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and battery.
