BANTAM, Conn. — A Connecticut man faces charges after a woman told police he stabbed a watermelon in a “passive-aggressive” manner, according to multiple media reports.
Police say the woman told police on July 4 she found drugs, including marijuana, in the man’s tool box. He was not arrested.
She later returned home to find a watermelon on the counter with a butcher’s knife in it. The man then reportedly entered the room and began carving the watermelon in a “passive-aggressive and menacing” manner.
Carmine Cervellino, 49, of Thomaston, was arraigned on Monday and charged with disorderly conduct.
The woman said she felt Cervellino was resorting to “passive aggressive” tactics to intimidate her because he was angry at her.
