BRADFORD, PA (WKBW) — Police say a Pennsylvania man pointed a loaded gun at his son and threatened to kill him over the size of chicken wings. City of Bradford officers were called to a home on South Avenue for a domestic dispute last Thursday. When they got there, they learned the fight between the father and son started over an order of pizza and wings.

Police say Donald McClelland was drunk when he started fighting with his son, saying that the chicken wings that were ordered were "too small." During the fight, police say McClelland went to the basement, got a gun, loaded it, and pointed it at his son, threatening to kill him. Police found the gun inside the home, along with a full 16oz. can of beer.

McClelland was arrested and charged with assault, reckless endangerment and harassment among other things. He was arraigned and remanded to jail.
