Daring to start Thanksgiving dinner before your drunk girlfriend wakes up? That’s a stabbin’. Or maybe a carvin’ would be more appropriate, given the circumstances.
Smith, 45, told officers that he had argued earlier in the day with Blake, who was reportedly intoxicated and had gone upstairs to sleep. While Blake snoozed, Smith began Thanksgiving dinner without her.
When Blake awoke to discover that the festivities had commenced in her absence, things got bloody.
Cops charge that she grabbed a knife and chased Smith around the dinner table. After dodging several stabbing attempts, Smith got knifed by Blake (who also threw the weapon at Smith, striking him in the face).
Police arrived as Jack-Lyn Blake was leaving, at which point they say she admitted to stabbing him. Always nice when the investigations are so easy on a holiday, I’ll bet.
She was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, reckless endangerment and making terroristic threats.
Victim Benjamin Smith was taken to hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening chest wound. Any time a story involving you, a crazy person and a knife ends with the words non-life-threatening chest wound, you shouldn’t have to think too hard about what to be thankful for.
