I do love Cheez-Its, and hopefully I'll never have to inflict bodily harm on any member of my family because of a dispute over Cheez-Its. So, be forewarned. Don't mess with someone's Cheez-Its.

This guy from St Louis, allegedly drunk, got in a dispute with his mother aand brother over a box of Cheez-Its. I bet he grabbed the box and there were only those cheesy crumbs left in the bottom of the box. That could certainly set someone off, right?

Well, an argument broke out over the Chezz-Its or lack of and the 32 year old guy locked his mother and brother in the house and proceeded to pour gas all around the dwelling before lighting it on fire.

The brother was able to lower the mother down from the second story and then escape himself. I'm guessing, holidays are going to be a bit awkward from here on out.

On the bright side, it's good to see families doing things together.

The offending brother is looking at serious jail time. We'll keep you posted.
