Ethel Jean Banks was arrested when she attacked her brother with a kitchen knife when he ate her BBQ ribs.

It wasn’t someone stealing a brisket this time, and no one ended up shot. This time an Austin, TX woman attacked her brother for eating her BBQ ribs.

“According to the arrest affidavit, Ethel Jean Banks, 61, is charged with aggravated assault (family violence), a second-degree felony.

It happened Sunday, Sept. 27 around 6:50 p.m. at a home in the 100 block of Hergotz Lane, just east of Highway 183 and south of the Colorado River.

The victim says Banks attacked him after they began to argue over the barbecue–ending with Banks charging at him with a butcher knife, court documents say.

The victim ran from the home and called 911. Court documents say the victim didn’t know the ribs belonged to Banks.

I like ribs, but they wouldn’t inspire me to violence. Brisket on the other hand…
