(Newser) – If "never stir another man's chili" isn't already a saying, maybe it should be. Adhering to it would have spared a 30-year-old Detroit man a trip to the hospital with stab wounds. About 5am Friday, the Detroit News reports, a 26-year-old man allegedly bit and stabbed the aforementioned victim because, as police put it, "the suspect was unhappy about him stirring the chili" that was in a pot on the stove at a residence in the 19200 block of St. Mary's Street.

The victim, a family acquaintance, suffered bites and non-life-threatening stab wounds to his thigh, per the News. The suspect's 35-year-old wife also was attacked; however, police say the nature of her injuries was unclear and she was not hospitalized. The suspect was arrested. None of the people involved have been named. As for the provenance of the spicy stew: "I don't know who made the chili," an officer tells the News. (Read more Detroit stories.)
