One woman’s love for barbecue went too far when a fight over the last rib at a family get-together became violent.
It’s that time of year when families get together for big outdoor barbecues. Unfortunately, one family’s fun event turned violent for a reason you might not believe.
At a large family barbecue in Muncie, Indiana, a heated exchange broke out over who was going to get the last bit of delicious food.
“[The victim] was upset that Davis was taking the last rib from the kitchen,” an officer said in the police report, according to FOX59. “[She] then confronted Davis about taking all the food.” The victim says that Davis was using a fork to move meat from a pan when she then turned and stabbed her directly in the eye. Davis argued that she was acting in self-defense by using the fork as a weapon because the other individual had pulled a knife on her.
According to 11 Alive, Davis was taken to a Delaware County jail on May 26 under a $5,000 bond.
One neighbor summed up the incident in the best way possible: “It was just so ridiculous. Barbecue’s good and all that, but it’s not worth sticking somebody in the eye with a fork, you know?”
