Argument Over Dinner Leads to Arrests

 
Posted Friday, August 8th 2014 @ 6am

A mother and her son have been arrested in Wayne County after an argument over the dinner menu turned into an armed confrontation.

Police in Macedon say 43-year-old Warren Jeffries got upset over what his mother, 71-year-old Shirley Jeffries, made for dinner. She got her husband's gun, carried it into her son's bedroom and demanded he talk the issue out. Warren jumped his mom and wrestled the gun away from her.  Police arrived to find a family standoff in progress, Warren having armed himself with a shotgun and an assault rifle and barricaded himself in his room. 

Shirley Jeffries was arrested for second degree menacing. Warren Jeffries was arrested for criminal posession of a weapon, since he'd never bothered to register the assault rifle under the NY SAFE Act.
