Remember when American Idol’s David Archuleta was announced as the runner up and the video that followed of heartbroken tweens crying over his loss? Whether you remember or not, it’s safe to say that people are amazingly still very passionate about American Idol and its contestants.
The latest people to overreact to the news of an American Idol contestant win is a Pennsylvania couple. Instead of rooting for the same contestant, the two got into a heated argument over Candice Glover’s win, resulting in a knife fight that ended in a blood bath.
Both now behind bars, Karen Elaine Harrelson, 48, and Gregory Stambaugh, 57, stabbed each other during their heated argument while watching the American Idol season finale in their basement. It is believed that the two were also drinking beers, but it isn’t said whether or not they were completely obliterated when they decided to resort to violence.
According to Stambaugh, Harrelson grabbed the knife first and stabbed his left forearm. He also claims that she was accidentally wounded after he had to struggle for the weapon. Of course there’s three sides to every story, and the second side is Harrelson’s story. In her statement Harrelson said that she wanted to use the knife to cut a piece of cake, when her boyfriend confronted her with a second knife, cutting her wrist. She claims when she stabbed Stambaugh that it was out of self defense.
Regardless of whose fault the Idol stabbing was, both Harrelson and Stambaugh were booked and charged with aggravated and simple assault.
It’s unclear what kind of knife was used, and which contestant on American Idol each was rooting for. The season finale showed Candice Glover battling it out with Kree Harrison, with Glover taking the Idol throne, leaving Harrison as this season’s runner up.
