Cheesy Texas headline

Man cut in fight over nachos
By Eva Ruth Moravec - Express-News
A fight over nachos caused San Antonio police to arrest two men at their South Side apartment late Tuesday night.

Marty Henke, 35, and Randy Scott Esckilsen, 45, are both being held in Bexar County Jail. Henke was arrested on an outstanding warrant for delivery of a controlled substance; his bond is set at $30,000.
Esckilsen faces one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on $75,000 bond after he allegedly stabbed Henke, his roommate, in the chin.

A San Antonio Police Department incident report states Henke was treated for the cut at his apartment, located in the 100 block of Lorita Street, at about 10 p.m.

The report states a witness brought Henke nachos, but he said he didn't want them, so the witness gave them to Esckilsen. Soon afterwards, Henke said he wanted the nachos and asked the witness for them. The two men then began to argue, and Esckilsen is accused of pulling out a knife, police said.

A struggle ensued, and Henke was cut on the chin. He called 911 and Esckilsen left the apartment; officers found him nearby and arrested him shortly after, but police said he didn't have the knife.

Police then learned Henke had an outstanding warrant and arrested him.
