Cops say 48-year-old Karen Elaine Harrelson and 57-year-old Gregory Stambaugh were watching the singing competition show last week at Stambaugh’s York home when suddenly an argument erupted between the pair as to which contestant should win the title —fight over Candice Glover, Kree Harrison.

The argument reportedly escalated when Harrelson took a knife out and stabbed her boyfriend. Stambaugh stabbed the woman in response to the attack.

According to York Police, the dispute between the couple was over “American Idol” finalists Candice Glover and Kree Harrison.

After the knife fight came to an end, both boyfriend and girlfriend were arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

This, while America crowned Candice Glover this year’s American Idol. So in the end there was 1 winner and 3 losers.

A York County couple is behind bars after an argument over the popular TV show, American Idol, led to a stabbing.

57-year-old Gregory Stambaugh of West Manchester Township and 48-year-old Karen Harrelson are in York County Prison the incident on May 15th.

According to the Affidavit of Probable Cause, Stambaugh stated, “Karen started drinking at 5 A.M. in the morning and was drinking beer and a lot of tequila throughout the day.” Stambaugh continued to say that he “didn’t start drinking till after 12 noon and that he was drinking beer and had a pint of Scotch.”

A statement in the Affidavit explained, “The two of them were watching American Idol and there was (an) argument between the two of them as to which singer was going to win the competition.”

According to police, the two were watching the show’s finale in the basement.

During the argument, Stambaugh told police that Harrelson went upstairs to the kitchen, got a knife, came back downstairs, and began stabbing him. He told police that he fought the knife away, and Harrelson got cut in the struggle.

Harrelson’s argument is the complete opposite, with Stambaugh stabbing her, and her defending herself with a kitchen knife.

When police arrived, Stambaugh and Harrelson were standing on the front porch, bloodied and arguing.

They were both taken to York Hospital for their injuries before they were taken to jail.

Ed Alex lives down the street from Stambaugh. “It’s really stupid,” he proclaimed. Alex has lived in the neighborhood for more than 40 years. He says he was good friends with Gregory Stambaugh’s parents, and he watched him grow up.

“He’s had some problems in the past.” He explained. Those problems include being charged with public drunkenness, driving under the influence, harassment, simple assault, disorderly conduct, and theft.

Neighbors told CBS 21 that he had been using a taxi to get from place to place, because his license was taken away.

Stambaugh is currently in York County Prison on 70-thousand dollars bail, while Harrelson is being held at 30-thousand dollars bail.
