Cops: Man Stabbed Brother During Fight Over Who Ate "The Last Of The Ribs"

An argument between brothers over “who had eaten the last of the ribs” turned violent early Saturday, with one sibling stabbing the other in the stomach, Iowa police say.

Investigators allege that Cale Jymm, 34, stabbed his 35-year-old brother Daniel during a dispute inside a room at the American Inn hotel in Council Bluffs.

Officers responding to a 911 call found a bloody pocket knife outside the hotel room door. Inside, Daniel--who was tending to an abdominal wound--told cops that he had been arguing with his younger brother over "who had eaten the last of the ribs" when the beef turned physical.

The victim, who was transported to a local hospital for treatment, told police that he did not want to press charges against his brother. The younger Jymm, however, was arrested on felony and misdemeanor assault charges.

Jymm, seen above, is being held in the Pottawattamie County jail in lieu of $20,000 bond. Next due in court on October 8, Jymm faces a maximum of 12 years in prison if convicted of the knifing.

The brothers, who live in New Mexico, moved into the hotel a month ago when they began working at a nearby power plant.
