  • He was arrested again this week in an incident that allegedly involved a pork chop.

For the second time in three months, an Athens man has been arrested after a family incident involving a pork chop, according to police.

In February, Terry Bernard Ball Jr., 29, allegedly threw a pork chop at his mother, the Athens Banner-Herald reported. Ball also got up, pushed his mother and head-butted her, police said.

He was arrested on a simple battery charge and released on $3,000 bond, which included conditions that he stay away from his mother and the property, the newspaper reported.

However, Ball allegedly went to his mother’s house Wednesday, police said. Ball’s mother reportedly called 911 at 2:53 a.m. and said her son was trying to fight everyone in the home.

When police arrived and tried to talk with Ball, his answers did not make sense, according to the newspaper. But he indicated “they ate his pork chop and now he has to eat noodles,” police said.
