American Idol Fans Stab Each Other Over Finalist Dispute

by at . Comments

American Idol Season 12 drew the smallest ratings in show history.

But, as proven by Karen Elaine Harrelson and Gregory L. Stambaugh, that doesn't mean the battle between Candice Glover and Kree Harrison didn't elicit some serious emotion.

According to The York Dispatch, these two were watching last week's Idol finale (and drinking) when they got into an argument over who should win.

Accounts differ on who went into the kitchen of Stambaugh's home to get a knife first… but both ended up with stab wounds and both were treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Both were arrested as well, of course.

They were each charged with two counts of simple assault and one count of aggravated assault.

Authorities said they found two knives and two bottles of alcohol, among other things, in the home; while both halves of the couple confirm they had been imbibing.

Stambaugh said Harrelson started drinking beer and tequila at 5 a.m., while he joined in at noon by downing beer and a pint of scotch. That's... impressive. And frightening.
