    Two brothers fighting over potatoes for Easter Dinner end up with a visit from police.

    An Easter morning fight over how to cook potatoes for Easter Dinner ended in the arrest of two brothers at a relative’s home in Bridgeport.

    William Downey, 53, of Stratford, was making potatoes on Sunday afternoon when his brother, John Downey, 57, of Milford, entered the kitchen to tell him he was making too many potatoes, police said.

    The Connecticut Post reports that the brothers were at a relative’s home and preparing the holiday meal.

    John punched William, who then pulled out a cooking pot and tried hitting John with it, according to police.

    The Downeys admitted to police that they attempted to harm one another during the argument, police said.

    They were arrested, charged with disorderly conduct and released on promises to appear in court.
