The fight erupted when Karen Elaine Harrelson and Gregory L. Stambaugh were watching the “American Idol” Season 12 finale on Wednesday (May 15). A great deal of alcohol accompanied the argument which escalated until one of them went to the kitchen to get a knife, according to the York Dispatch.
That’s when events get murky. Stambaugh says Harrelson got the knife and stabbed him first. Harrelson says Stambaugh got another knife and was the first to attack. Whatever the case, both held the weapon at some point and both ended up with multiple stab wounds.
Police arrested the pair and — after treatment for non-life-threatening injuries — charged them both with two counts of simple assault and one count of aggravated assault.
Both debaters remain in prison, awaiting trial. There is no word on who each of them thought would win.
Candice Glover won, by the way.
