Playing With Fire II

Antonio Owens, 27, went to the St. Clair Shores, Mich., apartment where his girlfriend was staying, and they got into an argument. “He grabbed a kitchen knife and said he is going to cut the gas line and burn down the place,” said police Detective James Wagner. “He tried to get the stove away from the wall to get to the gas line and she struggled to prevent him from doing that.” During that struggle, both Owens and his girlfriend realized the stove was electric, not gas. Owens then stabbed the woman, Wagner says, punched a hole in the apartment’s flat-screen TV, and left. He has been arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, and malicious destruction of personal property. (RC/Mount Clemens Daily Tribune) ...Finally: someone is thinking about the poor, defenseless, TVs.
