Kentucky man arrested for throwing ham during fight over when to host Christmas

Juggling multiple Christmases is never fun, but the drama boiled over last night in London, Kentucky, where a man was arrested for throwing a ham at a woman during an argument over which day to host Christmas.

Laurel County police responded to a call about a domestic dispute and caught David Brannon, 21, trying to run away from his house. He was arrested on charges of fourth-degree assault and fleeing or evading police on foot and taken to the Laurel County Detention Center. The fight was reportedly over what day his family wanted to host Christmas.

Who throws a ham? Honestly.

    He must be related to the idiot who works at Toyota who went viral last year for kicking a ham in the parking lot

    Before anyone jumps to conclusions, you need to see if someone deserved to have a ham thrown at them. Hell there are people in Laurel county that deserve a lot worse thrown at them.

    Throwing a ham is fine because it’s cheap. Now if it were a prime rib roast or a brisket there would be cause for concern.

    They had better have been playing football with that ham or I’m gonna strongly object to this being on a sports site.

    My question. Was it a spiraled ham?

    1. RealCatsFan

      I heard it was a perfect spiral. There ya go, football reference – that should keep Matt10 happy. 🙂

      And did she secure it and make a ham football move? The officials are still reviewing…

    Word is he threw the ham because the whole pig was too heavy.

    I hope they dnt charge that man…sometimes in this area you need to throw the ham to let everyone know where you draw the line…please nust let this man go for this …there are more serious crimes in the area…merry cheistmas give this young man a second chance …if he then throws another clifty…hang the bastard

    I heard hams don’t leave bruises. I don’t for sure. Unless of course it’s frozen.

  13. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    The only way to stop a bad guy with a ham is a good guy with a ham.

    Okay, full disclosure: I stole that line.

    Stories from Eastern Kentucky are the best! Those inbred hillbillies always do weird things.
