A Baton Rouge woman was arrested Thursday after she held a knife to her husband’s throat and hit him with a Thanksgiving turkey during an argument in their kitchen, police said.
An officer arrived at the couple’s Oaklon Drive home to find Helen Jackson, 52, and her husband standing face to face, yelling at each other, according to a police report. After separating the two, the man told the officer he was trying to cook a turkey when the confrontation occurred, the report says.
Jackson initially denied having the knife and getting into an argument, but later said she’d taken the knife away from her husband, who was using it on the turkey, the report says.
Jackson was booked into Parish Prison on counts of aggravated assault and domestic abuse battery. She remained in jail Friday afternoon, according to online records.
Black women. Knives. Stabby-stabby.
Just another day.
