A man in the US is reportedly facing charges of attempted murder after he fired a number of gunshots at his wife after she took a bite of his toasted cheese sandwich.

Baltimore ABC station WNEP reports on the shocking incident which took place in a town called Dundalk in the state of Maryland on Sunday.

According to reports, Daniel Brian Blackwell became angry after his wife took a bite out of his toasted cheese sandwich.

Police reports say that Blackwell initially fired one shot from the basement through the floor of the kitchen above where his wife was making dinner.

“Soon after, the wife heard three more gunshots, the projectiles of which came through the kitchen floor near where she was standing,” Baltimore County Police said in a statement released to the media.

Luckily none of the shots hit anyone and Blackwell's wife fled the house with three teenagers and called the police.

A three-hour standoff then began which ended when Blackwell was subdued with pepper spray.

Blackwell has been charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and various firearms violations.

He remains in police custody in hospital.

Last week in the UK a woman was sentenced to six months behind bars after she stabbed her boyfriend for eating all her chips.
