An argument over dirty dishes ended with a man in the hospital and his roommate in jail, according to Sonora Police.

An 18-year-old man reportedly told officers at the Sonora Regional Medical Center that his roommate had thrown a porcelain mug at him during the fight.

Police say the man told them his roommate grabbed a second mug and beat him with it.

According to investigators, a third roommate tried to help but couldn’t because the injuries were too serious.

Officers arrested 27-year-old Daniel Slawinsky for assault with a deadly weapon – the mug – and booked him into jail.

Slawinsky reportedly admitted to police that he hurt his roommate, and that the argument was over the dishes not being done.
