MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Police say an Indiana woman stabbed another woman in the eye with a fork in a dispute over the last rib at a barbecue.
The Star Press reports a 45-year-old woman was arrested Sunday night on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness.
An affidavit says the woman was attending a barbecue in Muncie when she raised the ire of the host’s daughter by “taking the last rib from the kitchen.”
The affidavit says the woman told police that the daughter accused her of “taking all the food,” so she stabbed her in the eye.
Police say the woman maintains she acted in self-defense and that the homeowner’s daughter was brandishing a knife.
The woman was in the Delaware County jail on $5,000 bond as of Tuesday.
