Peace on Earth?

Well, not in Vassalboro, apparently! A local man named Kenneth Knox chased his brother-in-law around the house with an ax on Christmas Day, then threw gasoline on his sister and her computer, then on a woodstove which consequently erupted in flames.

Why was Mr. Knox so upset? Well, because his brother-in-law had asked him to go outside to clean his chainsaw.

Is it just me, or does this sound like something out of a surreal set-up?

When apprehended by the police Knox was described by the sheriff as being "kind of distraught and uncooperative."

Seen this morning on the WCSH-6 morning news. Story here.
