Infant cut in men's battle over biscuits

This has got to be some of most messed stuff I have ever heard of. These folks need to be put away, just for being stupid.

DALLAS -- A 6-month-old girl was cut with a butcher knife during a melee early Thursday between a grandfather and grandson over who ate some sausage biscuits.

Walter Reed Booker, the child's great-grandfather, was in the Dallas County jail facing charges of injury to a child and aggravated assault. Booker, 52 and a convicted felon, was held in lieu of bail totaling $40,000.

Police responded to a report of a domestic disturbance about 1:15 a.m. at Booker's home in the 2200 block of Dathe Street, south of Fair Park.

Tory Kirk, Booker's grandson and the infant's father, told police he and the child's mother had arrived home and placed the infant on the bed to go to sleep.

Kirk then went into the kitchen to get something to eat and "discovered that somebody had eaten all of the sausage biscuits that he had purchased earlier."

He asked the child's mother whether she had eaten them. She said she hadn't. He then asked Booker whether he'd eaten them, causing him to become enraged.

Kirk and Booker began fighting before Kirk retreated to the bedroom and shut the door.

"Booker, now armed with what was described as a butcher knife, kicked the door open and went after complainant Kirk in an attempt to stab him," the report said.

Booker lunged at Kirk, who was on the bed, but Kirk evaded him. The infant suffered a cut on her arm.

Kirk and the child's mother were uninjured.

Booker has been convicted in Dallas County of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and felony DWI.
