SPARTANBURG, SC — Police say a man got so upset over his son-in-laws’s “yo’ mamma” jokes that he cut the comedian with a knife and threatened to kill him.
Police were stopped by a bloody man who told them he had just been cut by his father-in-law, 72-year-old Marvin Tutt. He says that he, Tutt, and another man were riding together and were engaged in a bit of trash talking that eventually turned to “yo’ momma” jokes.
An extremely intoxicated Tutt became angry over the jokes about his mother and expressed his displeasure by putting a knife to his son-in-law’s throat and threatening to kill him. When the victim tried to get out of the car, Tutt cut him. The man says that after he got out of the car, Tutt chased after him, but returned back to the vehicle.
Police pulled over the vehicle and arrested Tutt, charging him with aggravated assault and battery. It must of been one hell of a joke because police say Tutt was still fuming over it in the back of the patrol car where he stated he “should have killed” his son-in-law and that he was going to murder him.Tags: alcohol, Assault, Crime, joke, Marvin Tutt, South Carolina, Stabbing
