This is one of the strangest stories I've heard in a while, and it proves that people will argue and assault each other over just about anything. A 71-year-old Greenwood, Indiana man was arrested recently for pistol whipping a man while arguing about a Bruno Mars song.

Roger D. Washburn was hanging out with a couple of his friends (friends of over 50 years by the way), when they started arguing about whether or not Bruno Mars was the singer of a certain song. Washburn claims it was NOT a Bruno Mars song...his buddy claimed it was. One man finally produced some evidence to prove it was, in fact, a Bruno Mars song. This only made Washburn more upset. Words were exchanged, things got really heated, and Washburn eventually pulled out his gun and hit his friend with it.

Police were called to the scene where Washburn admitted to the assault. He now faces charges of battery and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.

One thing still remains unclear...the question we should all be asking...and that is what Bruno Mars song started this commotion? The world may never know.
