An Alabama man was found guilty Tuesday of shooting and injuring his son during a quarrel over the chicken wings while they were watching the Super Bowl.

John Louis Caver, 77, of Selma, was convicted of first-degree domestic violence after a one-day trial.

Prosecutor Michael Jackson said that Caver’s family was watching the NFL showpiece between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers on Feb. 7, 2016, when the argument broke out between the two for the 77-year-old shot his adult son in the chest.

“This must be some really good chicken,” said Jackson AL.com after the pronouncement of the judgment.

It is unclear what the taste of the chicken wings from the couple quarrel about, but they are not the only two with a hankering for the appetizer during the Super Bowl Sunday. An estimated 1.35 billion wings were consumed during Super Bowl weekend earlier this year, according to the National Chicken Council annual Chicken Wing Report.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 19, and Caver can be ordered to serve up to 20 years in prison.
