Tulsa Man Smashes Roommate With Beer Bottle In iPhone Vs. Android Argument: Police

Stabbing a guy who doesn’t agree with your choice of smartphone doesn’t seem very smart.

Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, arrested a man who allegedly did that to his roommate early Friday morning, NewsOn6.com reports.

Officers said Elias Acevedo, 21, and his roommate, Jiaro Mendez, got “highly intoxicated” in the parking lot of the apartment complex where they lived. At some point, they began arguing over which cellphone, Android or Apple, was better.

During the argument, Acevedo allegedly struck Mendez in the back of the head with a beer bottle. He then left his roomie on the ground, The Smoking Gun reports.

Police were called to the scene after getting a report of a bleeding man stumbling around the area, according to KJRH. They found Mendez covered in blood, and he told them about the Apple Vs. Android argument with Acevedo.

Mendez’s car was found in the parking lot. Acevedo was found in the apartment he shared with the victim. He was covered in blood and had several lacerations on his body, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Both Mendez and Acevedo were taken to local hospitals and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Tulsa World reports.

Acevedo was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Jail records also show he was being held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the website reports.

KTUL asked police which phone Acevedo preferred, but received no response.
