The holidays can be a very stressful time. Annoying relatives making a mess of your house, the pressure to buy the perfect presents, eating Thanksgiving dinner. Oh, you didn’t know that last one could cause stress? In the case of one Jack-Lyn Blake it was definitely cause for anxiety of some kind because she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend on Thanksgiving.
According to police, Blake and her boyfriend Benjamin Smith had been in a argument earlier in the day and Blake who was reportedly drunk (nooo) and had gone upstairs to sleep it off. While she was napping Smith began eating Thanksgiving dinner without her which, when she discovered this unforgivable transgression, grabbed a knife and started chasing him around the dinner table before finally stabbing him in the chest after several failed attempts. She also allegedly threw the knife at him hitting him in the face. Apparently the booze didn’t affect her knife-throwing accuracy, just her stabbiness.
Blake was later locked up in the Luzerne County jail on charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, reckless endangerment, and making terroristic threats. Bet YOU didn’t have anyone at your Thanksgiving dinner make any terroristic threats! Man, we’re so boring.
I guess not getting stabbed is just one of those things that Benjamin Smith will have to be thankful for next Thanksgiving.
