Woman throws pot of hot grease at face of man after alleged break-in
An Alabama woman was in the fight of her life when an armed man broke into her home. But she fought back and wielded a pot of hot grease and scalded the criminal’s face.
Police responded to a call for a domestic dispute at the 2800-block of Wimberly Drive, Decatur. According to USA Today, Macklin was the “primary aggressor in the altercation,” according to a police statement.
According to Newsweek, Macklin, 31, is the woman’s ex-boyfriend and had a gun.
Police contend that Macklin “entered the victim’s house with a firearm, and the victim defended herself with a pot containing hot grease.”
Police did not confirm how the woman knew Macklin.
“Since the situation was of a domestic nature, we are not at liberty to discuss the relationship between the victim and the suspect at this time,” a police spokeswoman told the outlet.
But she was compelled to defend herself with what was available to her.
Macklin was jailed and charged with first-degree domestic violence and first-degree burglary. He is being held on $300,000 bond.
Police said, “The defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty,” which is kind of an oxymoron given the evidence.
According to Darley Law LLC, a criminal justice firm: “First-degree domestic violence is a Class A felony, which carries a sentence of life in prison. First-degree domestic violence occurs when the defendant commits either aggravated stalking or first-degree assault.”
We hope this suspect learns from this and get butter, we mean, better.
