A 54-year-old woman
at the Hotel California in South Carolina has been arrested for stabbing her roommate several times in the arm, hand, and elbow after he refused to stop playing ’70s soft rock legends The Eagles.
According to ABC News 4, Vernett Bader of North Charleston took it to the limit when she attacked her 64-year-old housie and ex-boyfriend after he ignored her request to stop playing the Glenn Frey-led 5-piece.
As a last resort, she attacked him with a 14-inch serrated bread knife. The victim’s brother reportedly managed to get the implement away from the attacker, but she just went and retrieved another one from the kitchen.
Bader was arrested and is being held at the Charleston County jail, having been charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. She claimed that the attack was in self defense after her housemate tried to choke her, but no marks were found on her neck. Guess she just really fuckin’ hated The Eagles, man.
There’s been no report as to which song sent Bader over the deep end, but here at Music Feeds, we’re hedging our bets on Heartache Tonight for appropriateness, or possibly Love Will Keep Us Alive for the sweet irony factor.
This isn’t the first time a musical faux pas has driven a listener to acts of depravity. Back In April, a Colarado woman was arrested for choking her boyfriend after he refused to stop singing Macklemore‘s Hottest 100-topping Thrift Shop. And last month an American tourist was reportedly stabbed to death by the backing band at a karaoke night in Thailand after he threw a wobbly when the musos wouldn’t play his selection of Hotel California.
We guess you can check out, but you can never leave.
