GLENDALE — A father-son argument over bad smells in the kitchen led to one threatening to use his machete, and the other responding by retrieving his handgun, police said.
The 30-year-old son, Areg Girag, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly swung the machete at his father. He was released that morning after posting bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department records.
No major injuries were reported in the early-morning incident, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
Girag’s father had been watching TV about 12:30 a.m. in his home in the 300 block West Windsor Road when he smelled a foul odor coming from the kitchen where his daughter was cooking, according to police reports.
