Carmine Cervellino was arrested after stabbing a watermelon, according to police.
A 49-year-old Connecticut man has been charged with threatening after his wife told police he stabbed and carved a watermelon in a passive-aggressive manner.
Thomaston Police Chief Jim Campbell said Carmine Cervellino’s wife originally went to police on July 4 to report finding marijuana and drugs in a toolbox at the house. The toolbox was not there when police responded and no charges were filed.
When the woman later returned home, she found a watermelon on the counter with a butcher's knife in it, police said.
She told police that Cervellino came in soon after and carved the watermelon in a passive-aggressive manner, Campbell said.
The couple is in the process of going through a divorce, according to police.
No one answered a phone call from the Associated Press on Tuesday morning to the Cervellino home seeking comment.
NBC Connecticut also called a phone number listed for Cervellino and no one answered.
