WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) -- An argument over parking outside a nursing home got one man so aggravated he hit the other -- with a can of gravy.

It happened last night in West Valley City. Police say a man who was dropping his mother off parked his vehicle in front of the entrance to the home Thursday night. The second man arrived after that to also drop off a relative and was angry that the entrance was blocked.

Witnesses told police that the men argued about the blocked entrance until the second man flung the gravy at the other.

The man who was hit was not seriously injured and declined to press charges.

Neither man's name was released.
