Shotgun drawn after brothers argue about sandwich

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) – New Jersey police said a shotgun was brandished after two brothers argued about a sandwich for their mother. The argument began in Anthony Pilla’s Bridgewater house, where the mother lives. Police said Pilla’s brother threw his cap and glasses at the 49-year-old 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.
