It's like your mother always said: once you pop, the fun don't stop... until somebody gets stabbed.

That was the case on Tuesday night, when St. Louis police offers reported that an argument between two homeless men over ownership of a bag of potato chips ended violently, with one of the homeless men being stabbed over the squabble.

The 42-year old, whose name hasn't been released to the general public as of yet, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. He died moments later.

Police chased down the suspect, a 49-year old homeless man, on bikes. They've since caught him and jailed him, but formal charges have not been filed against him as of yet.

UPDATE: The Associate Press is now reporting that it was a bag of Cheetos, and not a bag of chips like they'd previously suggested.
