Cops: Man Stabbed for Eating Holiday Meal Early

On the plus side, a 47-year-old woman in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., really wanted to share Thanksgiving dinner with her boyfriend. Which is why Jacklyn Blake became enraged after waking from a nap to discover that he had started the meal without her, say police. Blake allegedly stabbed him in the chest and threw the knife at him, hitting him below the eye. He went to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while Blake was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, reports AP. The boyfriend says Blake needed a nap because she'd gotten drunk earlier in the day. (More Thanksgiving stories.)
