Family Fight Over Polish Sausage Leads To Battery Charges

CHICAGO (STMW) – A New Year’s Day fight over a Polish sausage has led to charges of unlawful use of a weapon and domestic battery against a 24-year-old man.

Jermaine Cook “slapped his sister in the face because they were fighting over a Polish sausage,” prosecutors said on Sunday.

Police were called Saturday to a home in the 3700 block of West Polk Street, where they allegedly found Cook outside holding a handgun.

Cook has three felonies on his record, including vehicular hijacking, prosecutors said.

    Too Funny

  • Wally

    It would have been funnier if he was actually hitting his sister with a polish sausage, you know like those big ones from Hillshire Farms. Yeah I know any violence is not good but seriously you can’t get hurt by someone smacking you with a polish sausage, Salami yes, polish sausage no.

    What brand of Polish sausage was it? It would be a great advertisement, Polish sausage worth fighting for.

  • Gordon

    Don’t mention that to Jermaine and his sister or they will probably fight over who should get paid for the story

  • sundog

    I wonder if the vehicular hijacking felony was for carjacking the Oscar Myer Weinermobile.

  • WD

    3 time convicted felon in possesion of a firearm over a polish sausage? Well, He can now have all he wants. You Can’t Fix Stupid!

    Pulls a gun on his sister over a polish sausage? Now what kind of danger is the rest of us civilians in if we p’d off this caveman!

    • Average Guy

      My advice would be, don’t mess with his polish sausage that seems to make him angry.
