BERLIN -- Police in the eastern city of Neubrandenburg said Wednesday the sausage strife broke out over the weekend when the 49-year-old man and his 8-year-old son were crossing the street.

As a 47-year-old BMW driver tried to scoot quickly into a nearby parking spot, the pedestrian yelled "stop" but after the car didn't slow, he threw the sausage he was carrying at it.

The bologna triumphed over Bavarian engineering, leaving a small dent in the BMW's back right door.

Police say the pedestrian is suspected of causing property damage.

The bologna was not seized as evidence.
