No Small Potatoes When Man Was Arrested Over Tuber

A man is facing charges after he allegedly became upset about the way a potato was cooked and he stabbed a woman in the head with a fork.

On Sunday, the authorities went to investigate claims of an incident regarding a woman who had possibly been the victim of injury from being stabbed with a fork. The third-party caller said that she had become concerned after she got a few blank texts, and then a call from the alleged victim.

When the officer reached the scene the alleged victim was sitting inside of a vehicle where a fork, which she said was the one reported in the dispute, and a shirt containing blood was also found. She did not appear to have severe injuries and she did not want medical treatment, but it was noted that there was allegedly blood and puncture marks on her head.

According to the affidavit, the alleged victim “refused to make any direct statements about the incident,” but she signed a form allowing entry and search of the residence.

The suspect, 36-year-old Kenneth Crumpton, was inside of the home and he reportedly stated that he did not stab the woman, but that he had thrown the fork and it made contact with her head and bounced off.

Crumpton was arrested for suspicion of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and he was ordered to be detained until paying a $25,000 bond.
