A man is said to have shot his roommate in the buttocks for eating the last Hot Pocket.

Clifton Williams, 64, began throwing tiles at his roommate after he found there were no microwaveable bags left, police said. Their argument on Saturday night turned violent.

“Williams was furious because the man ate the last hot pocket,” WLKY reported, based on court filings.

The flatmate told police he tried to “slap his butt,” which only enraged Williams, according to the Daily Mail.

“Don’t shoot!” The roommate told police he yelled at Williams.

But Williams “shot him in the ass trying to leave,” the victim said.

The roommate managed to walk several blocks to Beecher Street to get help and was taken to UofL Hospital. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Williams was arrested by officers from the Louisville Metro Police Department on Sunday and charged with second-degree assault. His bail was set at $7,500.

He was ordered not to contact his roommate and not to possess firearms. Williams has pleaded not guilty.

The identity of the roommate was not immediately revealed.

It’s not the only violent encounter between roommates.

In December, a 17-year-old boy reportedly shot and killed his roommate and work colleague as she was removing Christmas decorations from their home. Cayman Wilson and another boy of the same age were at the home they shared with the victim, Marissa Dikeman, 19, at the time of the incident. According to investigators, both boys were helping Dikeman take decorations off when Wilson pointed a gun at them and fired.

Wilson was charged with manslaughter while the other teenager was not charged.
