When snacks turn DEADLY! Apparently these things are dangerous enough to be classed as a weapon. Must've been a supersized bag of Cheetos to sustain such a serious injury. It's all fun and games until someone loses a crunchy, cheese-flavored snack made from cornmeal!


A 22-year-old man has been arrested for assaulting his father with a bag of Cheetos. Patrick Hamman started arguing with his father, Michael, on Sunday night. Patrick, who lives with his father in Iowa, picked up a bag of Cheetos and threw it at him, hitting him in the face, reported.


The bag hit Michael in the glasses, causing a cut to the bridge of his nose.

The police report , which listed the bag of Cheetos as an assault weapon, said: "Michael's T-shirt was also covered in Cheetos dust."
