Vernett Bader, 54, was in the news recently for allegedly stabbing her live-in ex-boyfriend after he refused to stop playing music by The Eagles.
Look, I’m not saying the guy deserved it, but truth be told doesn’t Hotel California make you a little stabby too? And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from watching The Big Lebowski, it’s that The Eagles’ music has this strange ability to turn normal people into jackwads.
According to the Huffington Post, Bader was watching TV with her ex-boyfriend’s brother when she asked him to turn off the music. Her ex-boyfriend responded by telling her to please let him listen a bit more.
Actually, no, that might’ve been the smart thing to do. According to the police, he did something that kicked the crazy up a notch…
He reportedly told her to “shut up.” Of course, Bader wasn’t about to take that so she went into her kitchen, allegedly grabbed a bread knife and started swinging away at him. After a brief struggle, the boyfriend wrestled the knife away from Bader grabbed another knife and continued the assault.
Once the police arrived, Bader confessed to stabbing her ex-boyfriend but insisted it was out of self-defense claiming he choked her. The police noticed that she didn’t have any marks on her neck and saw that her ex-boyfriend had a bloody stab wound. They put two and two together and came to the conclusion that she was probably lying.
Bader is now sitting at the Charleston County Jail where she has plenty of time to take it easy.
