Over the years criminals have used a lot of excuses for their crimes.  Probably most-notoriously was Son of Sam-killer’s “dog”-defense.  This story out of Florida takes the cake, too.

Janet Ann Knowles apparently doesn’t like Judge Judy.

The 62-year-old Jupiter woman was arrested Sunday on aggravated battery charges after she hit a 65-year-old man on the head with a hammer after she got “upset with Judge Judy,” according to a police report obtained by the Palm Beach Post.

Why did she do it?

Knowles told the officers she was upset “Judge Judy” was on the TV and became “mad” and hit the man with the hammer, the report said.

According to the report, the man was sitting on his recliner watching the judge’s show when Knowles lost her cool and attacked him with the hammer.
