Yes, they're one of the most successful rock bands of all time, but I think most sane people can agree that The Eagles are a scourge upon humanity. Not just musically, but in general. Someone should have done something to stop them when there was still time to nip things in the bud, but now we have to suffer through songs like "Life in the Fast Lane" forever. However, one North Charleston, South Carolina woman was taken to the limit one too many times:
A North Charleston woman is accused of wielding a knife in an assault on her roommate after he refused to stop listening to rock music by the Eagles Monday night.
Vernett Bader, 54, of Brossy Circle, is charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
North Charleston police responded to Bader’s home late Monday concerning a reported stabbing, an incident report states.
The woman’s 64-year-old roommate was nursing stab wounds to his arm, hand and elbow, police said.
The wounded man told police that Bader grew angry with him while he was listening to the Eagles and watching television with his brother.
Bader told her roommate she didn’t want to listen to the band. He responded by telling her to shut up, the report states.
To be clear, at the Tucson Weekly, we don't advocate violence, but if I ended up on this woman's jury, she'd walk.
