Police: Woman Stabbed Husband in Church for Worshipping NASCAR

March 17, 2014 - 3:06 PM

A Tennessee woman was arrested Sunday after crashing her car into a church and stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife, Church Hill, Tenn., police say.

Stephanie Haman claims that she had just been baptized at the church that day so, naturally, she decided to wreck the place by driving her vehicle through the front doors.

After that, she laid down in front of the church alter.

When her husband found her and approached her at the altar, police say, she stabbed him in the chest, telling him that "The Devil" was in her.

According to Hamman, both God and the Devil Played a role in her attack, Hamman told police.

Hamman initially went to the church due to her belief that her husband was worshiping a local NASCAR race and that the Devil himself was beginning to put thoughts in her head.  Additionally, she said, God was upset at her for smoking too much weed.

Apparently, God told Hamman that she shouldn't smoke marijuana ALL DAY - but, only in the evening, in order to relax after a long day.

Hamman believed that God wanted her to go to the church with several objects, including the knife.  But, as luck would have it, when she got to the church, it was locked.

"So, God told me He wanted me in there, so I drove my car through the front doors," she told officers.

"God told me to, so I did it."

Obviously, Mrs. Hamman was already having a pretty rough day, so it probably didn't make things any easier when she was arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder.

"When Steven came to check on me, I told him the Devil was in me and I stabbed him in the heart," she explained.  "Have you heard if he is dead or not?"

Fortunately, her husband survived.  Mr. Hamman pulled the knife out of his own chest and went back to his apartment where he waited for medical help to arrive.

Despite the ordeal and the charges leveled against her, it does not appear that the incident has dampened Mrs. Hamman's faith in the Almighty...or, her love of marijuana.

"I smoke a bunch of weed.  I love to smoke it.  Sometimes when I do, I start seeing things that others don't.  Isn't God good? He told me that this would happen, and just look, I am okay."

Good to know everything worked out for the best.
