An incident report says the man's son, Alex Rossi, then chased after the victim, punching him in the face and head. The victim said the fight left his eye bleeding and bruised.

Deputies say Rossi told them the fight did start over macaroni and cheese and he punched his father in the face, but his father punched him back. Deputies said Rossi had no visible injuries and the blood on his hand wasn't his own.
