NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — South Carolina authorities say a 44-year-old woman angry at a man for returning home without beer on Christmas beat and stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s office says in a report that deputies found a man covered with blood when they arrived at Helen Williams’ North Charleston home early Wednesday. She told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but couldn’t explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

Deputies say the man said Williams was so angry when he returned without beer because stores were closed on Christmas Eve that she grabbed a ceramic squirrel, beat him in the head, then stabbed him in the shoulder and chest.

Williams was in jail Friday and charged with criminal domestic violence. It wasn’t known if she had a lawyer.

That had to hurt like crazy. The woman has a real problem and I guess ceramic squirrels should be on the banned list along with guns.

When will we learn?

Ceramic squirrels MUST be Federally registered and tightly controlled! How many more tragedies like this must we endure before registration of ceramic squirrels and background checks on their owners are legislated and enforced? The Second Amendment does not cover this!

No jury will convict her!

Something Harder Than Beer

Her holiday must have been stressful and I feel she needed the HARD stuff. Beer would not take care of her problems and please get the squirrel some nuts to enjoy during his long rehab.

We need to register all ceramic squirrels

and restrict the tail length.

Seriously, consider giving up drinking.
