Man choked and stabbed after allegedly turning off lady's Crock-Pot on Christmas morning

A woman from Jamestown in southern Chautauqua County, New York, reportedly choked and stabbed a man after he allegedly turned off her Crock-Pot early on Christmas morning.

According to the Jamestown Police Department, officers were dispatched at approximately 12:34am, where it was determined that Bridget G. Putnam, 21, allegedly choked a male victim and stabbed him in the left arm with a kitchen knife after he turned off her Crock-Pot.

Putnam was charged with second-degree assault and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.

Since she was also found in possession of a controlled substance, Putnam was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Putnam is currently in Jamestown City Jail pending arraignment.

Oh, Kev. I always enjoy reading your stories of silly people getting into silly fights over the silliest of reasons. Apple fritters, beer, who ate the last piece of fried chicken. They're all hilarious and I always feel so superior to those folks.

Seriously, though, never turn off my crockpot. That might get you choked in my house, too.

Although there was no physical violence in the great chili cookoff of 2009, malicious turning off of the crockpot did result in some raised voices, hurt feelings, and at least one Fbomb. And I would do it again.
