A 16-year-old boy was taken to the hospital Monday evening after he told police his mother stabbed him with a fork during an argument over spaghetti.
He had a welt and a small cut when police arrived at the home of a neighbor on Maple Street who called police when he arrived there with his forearm bleeding.
The boy said the fight started during dinner. His mother told police he threw his food and the plate, and she walked over to him without realizing she had a fork in her hand. She said he must have hit his arm on the fork while he was throwing things around the house.
No one was arrested.
