BATON ROUGE – A woman has been arrested after she hit her husband with a turkey and threatened her husband with a knife.
Baton Rouge Police arrested 54-year-old Helen Jackson on charges of aggravated assault and domestic abuse battery. On Thursday, officers arrived to a home on Oaklon Drive to find the person who called 911 outside and stated that his mother and father were arguing in the kitchen.
Officers found the woman holding a knife to the man's throat. The officers separated the two and the man stated that the woman also hit him with a turkey that he was trying to cook.
After first denying that she had a knife, the woman admitted there was one involved because she took it away from her husband, who was cleaning the turkey.
