(Newser) – "Is it the most effective use of police resources? No." That's what a Toronto officer had to say after authorities responded to an alleged assault that resulted in minor injuries at an apartment in the city on Tuesday. The problem? Someone apparently got upset that their roommate had woken up too early to take a shower, reports the CBC.

After police shared the story on Twitter, a woman noted that "there has got to be more to this story." "Sadly, probably not," authorities responded. "We get calls like this frequently." It's not clear which roommate suffered the injuries. (A woman allegedly beat up her husband because he farted.)
