Karen Henry, 45, was so angry that her 80-year-old father told her she couldn’t eat his potato salad that she threatened him with a large kitchen knife, reports The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Karen Henry, 45, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and tampering with a witness Saturday after she waved the knife at Hubert Henry, forcing him to retreat into his bedroom, according to an arrest report.
“Karen became very angry that she could not have the potato salad and began throwing and breaking items,” the report states. “(She) then grabbed a large kitchen knife and began threatening Hubert with it.”
Karen Henry complained of abdominal pain while en route to the jail and was first treated at Florida Hospital Flagler, the report states. Deputies heard her on the phone from outside her room as she changed her clothing. Deputies contacted her father who reported that his daughter called and told him to drop the charges against her, according to the report.
