Florida Potato salad rage! Woman Attacks Father For Not Sharing Potato Salad
One charge of aggravated assault, with a side of rage.Police in Florida arrested a 45-year-old woman after she allegedly attacked her father for refusing to share his potato salad.
Officials say that Karen Henry, of Palm Bay, became enraged during the Oct. 22 incident, wielding a knife against her 80-year-old father and verbally abusing him, CBS Tampa reports.
“Karen became very angry that she could not have the potato salad and began throwing and breaking items,” a report obtained by The Daytona Beach News-Journal states. “[She] then grabbed a large kitchen knife and began threatening [her father] with it.”
Henry’s father, Hubert, defended himself with a chair before retreating to his bedroom for safety, according to reports.
Shortly after police arrested Henry, she began complaining of abdominal pains. Authorities allowed the suspect to be treated at Florida Hospital Flagler, only to catch her on the phone pleading with her father to drop the charges against her. As a result, police added an additional charge to Henry’s file: tampering with a witness.
Karen Henry is also charged with aggravated assault using a deadly weapon and is being held in Flagler County Inmate Facility without bail
