Texan allegedly stabbed person in eye with fork during Thanksgiving celebration

BRENHAM, TEXAS -- A Central Texas man has been charged with using a fork to stab a person in the eye and blind her during a Thanksgiving celebration (in Burton, Texas).

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says Steve Gantt was being held Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault causing bodily injury.

Sheriff's official had no immediate information on an attorney for Gantt, whose bond was set at $51,500 after he surrendered Monday.

Warrants were issued for the 42-year-old Burton man following the Nov. 27 attack at a residence.

6. What's the proper fork for that?

 


I'm thinking one of those oyster forks, but maybe a little larger.

11. Hey, there were a couple of semi-important stories that I posted in the Texas Group today.



Mr. Berryhill responded since he put up a story about Thanksgiving Day shootings and I asked him if this story qualified.

I'm off to lick my wounds now.

7. And to think...

Worst thing ever happened at one of our family Thanksgivings -- My Step-Grandfather pulled out his pocket knife and proceeded to whittle down a fingernail.

Yes he had been drinking and it scared one of the "holier than thous" in the family.

One of the many reasons I no longer participate in family get togethers. I prefer to gather with my children and grandchildren.

Crazy world out there.
