Woman stabs man with ceramic squirrel for failing to buy beer for Christmas Day

The woman told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but could not explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

A 44-year-old woman angry at a man for returning home without beer on Christmas Day beat and stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel.

The Charleston County Sheriff's office says deputies found a man covered with blood when they arrived at Helen Williams' home in North Charleston, South Carolina, early on Wednesday.

She told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but could not explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

Deputies say the man claimed that Williams was so angry when he returned without beer because shops 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 yesterday charged with criminal domestic violence.
