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.

    ” Wah….he scared me!” Parents reply to their 2 year old,”Did he hurt you?” 2 year old “No.” Parents “Did he touch you?” 2 year old,”No.” Parents,”Well than stop crying, go to your room, you’re annoying me!”

    Gee, if everyone were arrested for stabbing watermelons, poking dolls with pins/knives, or other actions without actually hurting people, the jails would be jammed and there would be more people in jail, than living in homes! This was ridiculous!

    Arrested for passive-aggressive watermelon carving? You’re kidding me, right? Hell, the passive-aggressive watermelon carving contest is the main event at most watermelon festivals in the south. Well, that and the beer guzzling and crawdad eating contest.
