South Carolina Woman Charged in Squirrel Assault
Helen Ann Williams apparently really wanted that beer. The North Charleston woman had reportedly been annoyed when her common-law husband had returned empty-handed from a beer run on the Christmas holiday. Not surprisingly, the store where her husband had gone for the alcoholic beverages had been closed for the holiday.
According to the police report, when her husband then went to fix himself a sandwich, Williams grabbed a ceramic squirrel and hit him over the head with it. She then allegedly stabbed him in the chest and shoulder. He managed to get away to a neighbor to call 911. When police arrived, they found the husband with a large amount of blood on him.
When Williams was asked what happened, she reportedly tried to say her husband fell and hurt himself. Since she is reported to have had blood on her as well, officers were skeptical. Williams finally told them what happened when the husband took off his shirt, and police found a large gash in his chest. He was treated at a local hospital, and his wounds were deemed not life-threatening.
Williams was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. She is currently being held on $10,000 bond.
According to NBC, there is no word on the condition of the squirrel.
