It’s NEVER that serious…SMH
Laura Chavez, 60, of Santa Fe, N.M., is accused of repeatedly stabbing her boyfriend, Clyde “Butch” Smith, 48, when a family game of Monopoly went terribly awry.
Chavez began to argue with Smith while playing the board game with her 10-year-old grandson. The boy told police that Chavez accused Smith of cheating at Monopoly, and then sent the boy to bed around 11 p.m. mid-argument.
According to a probable cause statement released by police, the couple’s dispute escalated until Chavez hit Smith over the head with a glass bottle, then grabbed a knife and began to cut him on his head, neck, face, arms and hand.
Chavez’s grandson slept through the physical altercation, waking up when police arrived in his bedroom, according to the statement.
Police said Smith was in stable condition at St. Vincent’s Hospital, where he was taken by ambulance after the attack. Doctors told police Smith was “very intoxicated” when he arrived. Police said Chavez’s apartment was covered in blood from the assault.
Chavez was held on a $5,000 bond.
This isn’t the first time that board game brawls have broken out. There was a woman choked back in September by her husband over a game of Yahtzee. Also, in 2009, a man attacked a woman that would not give up the deeds to Boardwalk and Park Place.
Think he took the whole “Boardwalk Empire” thing a lil too far.
