SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Savannah-Chatham police are looking for Michael Allen Parrish, 55, believed to have attacked two people with a hammer before he was chased away by a woman wielding a rolling pin.

The alleged assaults happened in the 2200 block of East 60th Street about 10:20 a.m. Tuesday. According to a police report, Allen and his girlfriend had lived together until a few days prior, when an argument over country music stars Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn caused a rift in their relationship.

According to the report, Parrish came over to his girlfriend’s home Tuesday after talking with her on the phone. When she walked out to meet him, Parrish allegedly shoved his girlfriend to the ground. A female friend tried to come outside to see what was wrong, and Parrish allegedly attacked her with a hammer, hitting her on her hand, forearm, neck and head. A male friend tried to intervene and also was struck in the head with a hammer.

Parrish fled the scene when a third female friend grabbed a hammer of her own, as well as a rolling pin, and ordered him off the property.

I like these humorous police

I like these humorous police incident reports. Maybe the judge will keep smiling when he passes out the punishment.

Reba McEntire would scratch

Reba McEntire would scratch out Loretta Lynn's eyes and grab her by that long hair and slam her into Conway Twitty's tombstone.

Reba? The most successful

Reba? The most successful gender-reassignment example in history?
{ducking}
In both cases, I wonder what it's like to carry such a powerful instrument around all the time. But this is an argument about taste. It's like arguing about Page vs Van Halen - and I'm sure there's a singer out there we haven't heard of that deserves more attention still.
