A Baton Rouge woman is behind bars after she attacked her husband with a turkey. Sgt. Don Coppola with Baton Rouge Police says a juvenile male called police on Thanksgiving Day to report that his parents were fighting. He says the situation escalated when 32-year-old Helen Jackson pulled a knife on her husband.
“The knife was to his throat, and then she had taken a turkey that he was trying to cook for a Thanksgiving meal and actually had hit him with it,” Coppola said.
Coppola says Jackson was arrested on multiple charges.
“Helen Jackson was later charged and booked into the parish prison for aggravated assault for threatening him with the knife and domestic abuse battery for striking him with the turkey,” Coppola said.
