NEW KENT, VA (WWBT) -

A New Kent County man will spend the next two years in jail after getting into a fight over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 

According to the New Kent Chronicle, Sidney Ryan Rich will not get out of jail until 2018. 

Police showed up to a home in the Lanexa area after Rich's wife said she and her husband were fighting over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

After smelling alcohol, police asked Rich if he owned any weapons. 

Rich and his wife confessed he did have a weapon on him, which is a problem because Rich is also a felon.

So under state law, any felon caught with possession of a weapon faces automatic jail time.
