The Traverse City Police Department (TCPD) in Michigan arrested a man Tuesday after he allegedly assaulted a man with a sharp object over an argument about “subpar sushi,” reported.

The suspect, a 20-year-old male, was allegedly upset because the victim, a 27-year-old, brought sushi to a campsite Monday that he did not like, the local outlet reported. (RELATED: ‘Sick Of The Disrespect’: Sushi Restaurant Gets Review Bombed Because Owner Is White)

The suspect allegedly became violent and swung at the victim with a sharp object, either a machete or hatchet, the outlet reported. The two allegedly engaged in what police described as a “sword fight” as the victim grabbed a shovel to defend himself, the outlet noted. In the middle of the struggle, a third unknown person allegedly flung feces at the victim, reported.

The 20-year-old suspect was arrested for felonious assault, the outlet reported. TCPD acknowledged that they did not find any weapons inside the tent of the suspect but alleged that three hatchets and two shovels were found in a nearby tent.

Under Michigan law, conviction over felonious assault can mean one to four years in prison and a fine of up to $2,000, according to Prain Law. The law office noted that if the weapon used for the assault is “a sharp object” then conviction could result in 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
