Hours Long Armed Standoff With Police Because Of A Grilled Cheese Sandwich


A Baltimore man was arrested following an hours-long standoff with police that began when his wife took a bite from his grilled cheese sandwich, police said.

The man's wife told police she had been making dinner in the kitchen when her husband fired a shot up through the floor while he was in the basement. The man, identified Monday as Daniel Brian Blackwell, 55, was angry at her because she had taken a bite from his grilled cheese sandwich, police said.

The wife went into the basement, where she saw Blackwell surrounded by guns and ammo, according to police. He briefly came upstairs, then went back into the basement and fired three more shots up through the basement floor, near where the wife was standing, police said.

The woman fled the house along with three teenagers, and police tactical teams responded. Blackwell, who was wearing a holster of ammunition around his waist, surrendered around 8:30 p.m., police said. Officers subdued him with pepper balls and was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Police later found a loaded, lever-action long gun with a chambered round placed just inside the front door. Police said he is in custody at a hospital pending an emergency evaluation.

Blackwell was charged with first and second-degree attempted murder and related charges. No attorney was listed for him in court records.

Police said Blackwell is not legally allowed to own guns because of prior assault convictions. Fifteen guns, four of them loaded, were found inside the home, police said.

What does this have to do with celebrity gossip? Answer: Nothing.

What a moron.
If he was that upset, why didn't he just make another sandwich?

Making a Grilled Cheese is NOT that hard, is it fellow non-chefs?

Many, many times when our children were young, we made them grilled cheese sandwiches -- and bites were shared and taken from "others" sandwiches all the time.

It happen so much, my wife decided to cut the grilled cheese sandwiches into: "Half and a 2 in triangles!" (as our son called them) and serve them on a plate in the center of the table where you could take as many as you needed while you slurped your tomato soup.

Once when Grandma (my mom) came to visit, she was making them and asked her grandson "do you want your sandwich cut?"
He replied, "half and a 2 in triangles!"
She had no idea what he was talking about.
So, to alleviate her frustration, I showed her.

Fun times -- that didn't require any use of a firearm!

If the grilled cheese sandwich had had a gun it could have defended itself.

Munchies are a serious thing. Imagine if it was a grilled cheese that had ham on it.

I remember as a kid, opening up a brand new jar of peanut butter and being excited because I would be the first to take a scoop out of it. Imagine my surprise when my mom took the jar out of my hand and dipped into it first. Little did I know that that was grounds for killing her. Oh, missed opportunities!

Happy that there were no casualties - that could have gone much worse. And glad he has been removed from the home. And people think guns aren't too available.

I'm for the right to carry fire arms but automatic, high caliber, and hundreds or dozens of them? For what? Maybe for privet use we should stick to a lesser range?
