Brittany Peoples gave Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies this account: She left a sandwich in the refrigerator last night. Her brother proceeded to eat it without her permission. When she questioned him about it, he became violent and struck her several times. Demarcus Peoples tells it this way: His sister came into his room this morning, yelling about the sandwich. She tried to pour shampoo on him and then struck him with her hand several times, he said. Deputies were called to their Chestnut Ridge Lane home. Both refused medical treatment, and both were arrested on a third-degree charge of domestic violence. Their bonds were set at $300 each. "That must have been one good sandwich. I bet when Demarcus ate it he never dreamed it would be the catalyst to jail," said Chief Deputy Randy Christian. "I can just see his sister snapping when she realized her sandwich had been eaten. I completely understand that."We wonder what type of sandwich this was.
