Rock Hill, South Carolina police arrested a 43-year-old woman Monday after she reportedly pulled a kitchen knife on her husband over a radio volume dispute.  The husband allegedly asked his wife, who had been drinking, to turn the volume of her boom-box down.  When she failed to listen, he turned the music down himself.

This was a big mistake.  The man reported to police that as he left the bedroom, his wife grabbed his shirt and began slapping him causing him to retreat to the kitchen.  Following her husband into the kitchen, the wife unsheathed a kitchen knife and threatened him; he responded by retreating to the bedroom and barricading himself inside.

The woman denied allegations of abuse.  She claimed that they both were drinking, and he was “acting crazy” causing her reaction.  She denied the origin of the dispute was as a result of the loud music.
