You Think?

You don't read every news story to the end. You know you don't. With some, you don't even get past the headline. But some we read all the way through. Sometimes it's because they sort of scare us, and we can easily imagine ourselves in the same situation. Accidents, floods, that sort of thing. Others we read because they're reassuring. We know we're way smarter than those folks who signed up for the mortgage with an interest rate that started at 1%, but went to 25% in the third month. Those stories make us feel better: We're at least a little bit in control.

But some stories we read all the way to the end because we can't imagine how they can be true (we couldn't ever be in that position, and we don't even know anyone who could ever be there). The people involved seem to be from another planet, or at least a different species.

Which brings us to today's cautionary tale, brought to you by the letter P (for "pick ax") from beautiful Arizona:
Tempe police arrested a woman Tuesday night on suspicion that she tied up a man during sex, then stabbed him repeatedly with a knife and told him she likes to drink blood.

Tiffany Sutton, 23, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault at 11:55 p.m. in the 1000 block of South Lola Lane, where she and the victim were living, police said.

The man told police he had consented to being tied up but became scared when the woman attacked him with a knife. He eventually freed himself and ran away, but Sutton chased him with a pickax, police said.

The man was taken in an ambulance to a local hospital, where he was treated for injuries.

Police were unsure if the pair were friends, but Sgt. Mike Horn said the man and woman were not in a relationship.

Both admitted to authorities that they had consumed alcohol and drugs prior to the attack, Horn said.

The man called his friend, who found him passed out and then called police. Sutton initially acted like she was the victim, Horn said.

Sutton later told police the entire encounter was consensual.
My personal favorite is "Police were unsure if the pair were friends." Do you suppose they mean to wonder of the two remain close after this unfortunate misunderstanding?
