Palm Bay, Florida (FL Today) -- A West Melbourne man has been arrested on a charge of battery after an argument that apparently started over chicken nuggets.

Police investigating a report of a domestic violence battery went to the 1500 block of Manzanita Street NW in Palm Bay, where they talked to a boy who said Valentin -- his uncle -- was upset that the boy had cooked too many chicken nuggets.

The boy went to his room, but an argument between his mother and uncle continued, according to a police report.

John J. Valentin, 19, of West Melbourne, is accused of hitting his sister, knocking her to the ground, before fleeing the home. He was found and arrested a short time later.

Valentin said his sister was standing close to him and said she hit him when he asked her to move away, according to the police report. The report also says that after being hit, the woman fell to the ground and was unconscious.

She was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries.
