The five plus hours worth of rain delays this past weekend during NASCAR’s Food City 500 truly tested the dedication of NASCAR fans. Asking fans to wait around all afternoon and then all evening puts even the most die-hard fans to the test. Apparently one local Tennessee mans love for NASCAR pushed his wife over the edge.
According to a report from WCYB.com, a local Tennessee woman stabbed her husband because he worshiped NASCAR. Now I bet that you’re thinking that there is more to this story, fear not because there is plenty more.
The news report claims the the woman drove her car through the walls of Providence Church. It was at this point that here husband went to go and check on her. He found her laying in the church and when he approached her, she stabbed him with a kitchen knife after exclaiming “the devil is in me.” The report says that the husband then ran home to call the police.
But wait, there is more.
After the woman was arrested she told officers during her statement that her husband was worshiping the NASCAR race from Bristol and that upset her. She then explained to them that she began having ‘thoughts that the devil put in her head.’ As she continued with her statement she gave the officers a play-by-play of what had happened.
After I drove through the doors, I put all the things I brought to the church at the altar. I called [my husband] and told him I had wrecked. I laid down in front of the altar until he got there. The devil told me to take the kitchen knife with me. I prayed I would not have to use it on him, but I did. When Steven came to check on me, I told him the devil was in me and I stabbed him in the heart. Have you heard if he is dead or not?
For the record, her husband is alive and well and she is currently in prison for attempted murder. Also, when all of this was happening the woman was under the influence of marijuana.
I have to wonder whether or not this man is ever going to look at enjoying NASCAR the same way again. Over the years there have been a lot of interesting stories about wives or girlfriends overreacting to their male counterparts love for a certain sport. Although I’m sure I haven’t seen all of those stories; I am pretty confident in saying that this one takes the cake if you will. Thankfully the gentleman is okay and hopefully he was able to see the end of the race since he seems to be a pretty big fan and all.
