A South Carolina man became violent during a dispute over salt-and-vinegar potato chips, authorities said. Ryan Dean Langdale, 19, had warned his 17-year-old cousin not to eat his chips, but when he did, Langdale shot him, authorities said Wednesday. The cousin is recovering after surgery.
“Do not touch my chips, or I’ll shoot you,” the cousin said Langdale had warned him, the Post and Courier of Charleston reported. He surrendered Wednesday morning, with his bail set at $55,000, according to the Post and Courier.
The alleged crime occurred in a rural area about 60 miles west of Charleston.
