Xylophone Rage Is Now A Thing

May 2, 2017

Move over roads, there's a new kind of rage in town.  For the first time ever, someone has been charged in connection with a xylophone rage incident.

According to police, Floridian April Encarnacion, 43, was arrested earlier this month on a domestic battery charge after police responded to a residence in Fort Walton Beach.

Encarnacion, cops say, was in the kitchen with the male victim, who “was playing a xylophone” around 9:20 PM. Encarnacion--apparently not enjoying the Friday evening musical performance--“asked him to stop!”

When the man refused, Encarnacion, retalitated and dumped a pot of cold cooking grease on him.

An officer who responded to a 911 call noted that the victim had wet spots on his shirt and shorts, and that “there was a puddle of liquid on the ground where the victim was sitting near the xylophone.”

During police questioning, Encarnacion reportedly confessed to the attack.  The police report does not reveal whether the xylophone was of the Fisher Price variety or more like an actual percussion instrument. Xylophone rage ain't nothing to mess with!
