It must have been one heck of a pie.
That’s what one deputy said after responding to a call about a fight at the corner of Brenda Drive and Scott Court that he says erupted in a dispute over a butterscotch pie.
“When I pulled up I asked what was going on,” said Deputy Tony Likens. “I was told a couple of guys had been drinking. One guy was in the bathroom and another guy went in and head-butted him.
“When I asked a woman what started it, she said it was over a butterscotch pie. I said ‘don’t pull my leg,’ but that’s what started it.
“That must have been the best butterscotch pie ever.”
Officer Jeremy Cornish of the Lawrenceburg Police Department also responded. He said no one was charged in the incident that involved two men in their 20’s.
Cornish said he, Likens and officer Josh Satterly were able to calm down those involved.
“It was a mess, but I told them I didn’t want to take anyone to jail on Thanksgiving Day,” Satterly said. “But I told them that if we had to come back, we would.”
