A bachelorette party ended in a seemingly unimaginable way early yesterday in Louisville, Kentucky. The bride-to-be and her sister were walking back to the Econo Lodge where they were staying when, as WHAS11 puts it, "some sort of interaction" reportedly occurred between the women and a man who approached them. Police say Sherrie and Melissa Snader of Cincinnati were both stabbed by that man; the sisters ran and managed to get help. Police this morning said they arrested Kalief Cummings in connection with the crime. The sisters suffered collapsed lungs but WHAS11 reports they should be OK. As for whether 27-year-old Sherrie's wedding will take place on Saturday as planned, her father yesterday said it's unclear.

It's not the first bachelorette party to end in bloodshed. Last August, a woman celebrating her cousin's impending nuptials at a Manhattan bar had her thigh punctured by a stranger's stiletto. The New York Post reported in November that Amanda Keisoglu suffered a wound so deep it couldn't be stitched after Marie Thys allegedly kicked her at the Gansevoort Hotel's rooftop bar in November. Keisoglu filed a $5 million lawsuit against Thys, who Keisoglu claims was drunk, "belligerent, and violent against other ­patrons for some time prior to the attack," and the venue.
