Police: Man who forgot the beer is stabbed with ceramic squirrel

December 27, 2013 

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Charleston County deputies say a 44-year-old woman angry at a man for not returning home with beer on Christmas beat and stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel.

Authorities said they found a man covered with blood when they arrived at 44-year-old Helen Williams's North Charleston home about 12:20 a.m. Wednesday. She told investigators the victim fell and cut himself, but she couldn't explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

Deputies say the victim told officers Williams was so angry when he didn't return with 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 remained in jail late Friday on a $10,000 bond.
