AND, In Crime News Today . . .

This might be considered highly unusual if it didn't take place in Oklahoma.

Heard on 95.9 FM out of DFW this evening - - -

Two men got into a violent argument in this little Oklahoma town. They went out into the street and had a brawl. The police arrived, arrested one of the combatants for aggravated assault, and hauled him off to jail.

The weapon used? A pork chop bone.

Why are you scrolling down? There's no punch line, 'cause it's not a joke. Straight news story.

LATE EDIT:
While runnin' my traps Saturday morning, I found a more complete version of this news story. It is from Oklahoma City's KFOR-TV.

Man stabs another man with pork chop bone
NBC NEWS REPORT
ARDMORE -- An Oklahoma man was arrested after police say he stabbed another man in the neck with a pork chop bone during a food fight.


Police in Ardmore, Oklahoma responded to call of a fight outside a local business New Year's day. When they arrived, they found the victim covered in blood with a puncture wound to his neck.

Police arrested the suspect, 38-year-old Tony Willis a few block (sic) from the crime scene. According to authorities, Willis had blood on his clothes and they found the bone used in the attack.

The victim was treated at a local hospital and released.

That's pretty disturbing. Did he sharpen it first, like a homemade shiv in prison?

I just don't see how you could do any damage with a porkchop bone otherwise, unless he used it like a set of brass knuckles!

Uh, I've seen some pretty damned sharp pork chop bones. When the butcher's bone saw slices 'em right, they could make a pretty mean push-dagger.

Ew.

Seems somehow...undignified.

For both "victim" and perpetrator!

That just goes to show ya that anyone will use anything as a weapon.

Yeah, Pork Chop bones are a No-No for dawgs because they are sharp and they fracture easily. Not as easily as chicken bones, but when they fracture, they have very sharp edges. Even small dawgs have the jaw strength to break pork chop bones, so don't give them to your pups.
And if you have, and haven't had a prob...your dawg has been lucky. My Mother lost a Cocker SPaniel after it got in the trash and ate pork chop bones. Perforated his stomach. Vet couldn't save him b/c he'd lost too much blood. :(

Beats the jawbone of an ass.

I'm surprised that people are surprised about this. Some folks are so marrow-minded.
