Police were called out after a domestic disturbance was reported to find a truck with its windows smashed to pieces and a scratch on the driver’s side, with the victim of the assault claiming the motivation was a Facebook like.
The owner of the truck told police that his girlfriend of 13 years and mother of his 9-year-old daughter, Yorka McKnight, 27, woke him up in the middle of the night and interrogated him over something posted on Facebook. According to the boyfriend, the post in question was a “happy birthday” message posted by one of his friends on his profile. Unfortunately for him, a girl that he had cheated on McKnight with in the past had liked the message.
An argument then broke out, which escalated to the point where McKnight was accused of removing a hammer from the victim’s toolbox and proceeding to violently attack the truck, smashing the front windshield, driver’s side-window, and scratching the entire driver’s side of the truck.
There was also a small scratch on the head of the boyfriend, although he told police that he was not sure how it happened. After the attack had stopped, he agreed with McKnight that he should remove all of his belongings from the property and move back with his parents, even though the couple had only moved into the house a week ago with intent to purchase.
McKnight was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree breach of the peace.
