WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say an 84-year-old man stabbed his wife during an argument that began over the sloppy peeling of mangoes.

The Palm Beach Post (http://pbpo.st/2aiFswn) reports Uriel Bradshaw was arrested Saturday on charges of aggravated battery with a weapon.

An arrest report says Bradshaw was eating mangoes in a bedroom of the couple’s West Palm Beach home. His 65-year-old wife became irritated when she saw he was putting pieces of the mangoes on the floor.

Police say the Bradshaws began arguing and he lunged at her with a steak knife. She told investigators he stabbed her twice. She banged on the walls to alert her daughter to call police.

Bradshaw says he doesn’t remember stabbing her. He’s being held on a $10,000. Jail records don’t indicate whether he’s hired a lawyer.
