A ceramic squirrel stabbing is making headlines today because of the bizarre actions of a woman who was furious at a man who returned home without beer on Christmas. Helen Williams allegedly picked up a ceramic squirrel to beat the man with and when it shattered on impact she stabbed him with the jagged edges, according to ABC News on Dec. 27.
A man was covered in blood when police arrived at a North Charleston, Carolina home on Wednesday. 44-year-old Helen Williams first told the police that the man cut himself after he fell, but because she too was covered in his blood, the cops didn’t buy that excuse. The man told police that he had gone out to fetch some beer, but because of the holiday beer wasn’t being sold.
When he returned home Williams grabbed the ceramic squirrel and first beat him in the head and then stabbed him in the shoulder and chest once the novelty nick-knack shattered. He suffered minor injuries in the nick-knack attack. She was charged with criminal domestic violence. She was still in jail on Friday.
