A fellow in Edinburgh, Ind., went on a perplexing rampage recently when he stabbed several packages of raw meat in a supermarket, apparently all in the name of vegetarianism. But Anthony Coffman didn’t stop there. He also took the additional step of smearing dog food into some of the packages, hoping to contaminate the meat so it could not be sold. His motivation? Well, according to what he told startled store employees, Coffman was on a mission from God to prevent little girls from eating meat so they wouldn’t get fat.
As admirable as Coffman’s goals might have been, his methods didn’t win him any fans among store employees, who wrestled him to the ground and held him until the police arrived.
“He thought if he could save one chubby girl, he’s done his job,” Edinburgh police Deputy Chief David Lutz told WRTV news. “He’d got into it with his grandmother. She was preparing a pot roast … and he was upset over that. Him and her had a few words, and then a couple hours later, he’s down there at the Jay C Food Store doing this.” About $200 worth of meat was lost in the incident. Coffman faces charges of criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
