Indiana woman stabs husband for bringing home the wrong doughnuts


It is only a doughnut. It isn’t worth stabbing someone over.

I don’t know what it is about food that makes some people violent. We have seen people stabbed over BBQ, or taking the last piece of chicken, but this is the first time I have seen doughnuts as the motivating factor. The grill fork as choice of weapon was a nice touch as well.

From TheSmokingGun:

An Indiana woman stabbed her husband in the chest with a grill fork after he returned home without her favorite doughnuts investigators charge.

According to a police report, Timothy Nelson “went to get doughnuts for his wife” Friday morning at a store near the couple’s home in New Albany, a city about six miles from Louisville. But the store “did not have the type she normally gets.”

So, cops say, Nelson returned home“without the doughnuts.” This did not sit well with his wife Michelle, 37, who was upset that her spouse “did not know what else she liked after being together for several years.

When a heated argument over secondary doughnut choices followed, Timothy sought to leave the residence, but “Michelle was blocking the door.” During the ensuing scuffle, “Michelle lunged back at him and she had a grill fork in her hand. The grill fork stuck in Timothy’s chest.”

After pulling the fork from his chest, Timothy fled the home, with Michelle “following him and still yelling at him.”

When cops arrived on the scene, they found Timothy sitting against a tree “applying pressure to the puncture wound on his right chest.” His t-shirt and jeans were soaked with blood. He was then transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

I don’t really know what more to add. Thankfully the victim is expected to make a full recovery, so I don’t mind finding mild amusement from this one.

Stay safe out there folks. Make sure you buy your significant other the proper donuts. Or better yet, don’t have an unstable psychopath as a significant other in the first place.

    I had a cup of coffee thrown at my head which burned my face and left a laceration on my forehead which required 5 stiches after I had forgotten to put sugar in it by my X girlfriend. Needless to say we are no longer together.

    nice to see a two pronged approach. i’d say it’s about tine.

    Here I thought she wanted Dunkin’s and got Krispy Kremes or some store brand instead. I’m disappointed in her.
