Ceramic Squirrel Stabbing: No Beer Leads to ViolenceBy: Jasmine Allen - December 27, 2013
A North Charleston woman was arrested early Christmas morning after stabbing and beating her significant other with a ceramic squirrel.
Helen Williams, 44, got into an altercation with the man over beer.
According to reports, the 41-year-old man went out for beer earlier that night but the store was closed, as in many other stores that aren’t typically opened on Christmas Eve.
When he arrived back at the house Williams went into a rage, beating him over the head and stabbing him in the chest and shoulder.
The wounded man with scratches all over his face rushed to a nearby neighbor’s house for help and called 911.
After police arrived, Williams was questioned about her visibly bloody hands and clothes. She claimed that the wounded man fell and cut himself.
However, evidence showed otherwise.
The man was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
Most ceramic squirrel sculptures are made by a process of heating and cooling clay (pottery for example), usually are small in size, and can be crafted in different designs. They can also be made with pointy tails, so I can’t even imagine getting stabbed by one!
Fortunately for Williams, her heinous and yet unusual attack OVER BEER will not go unpunished.
Williams was arrested and placed into the Charleston County jail Friday on a $10,000 bail. Her charges include criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
Here is a pretty decent video tutorial showing how ceramic squirrels are made.
Looks like a pretty lethal weapon to use, huh?
