Tennessee Teen Stabbed His Brother To Get Out Of Family Vacation

A 13-year-old boy in Tennessee is facing charges after stabbing his brother with a pocket knife on the family road trip, his reason he told police is too funny... and he has a point.

Police didn't name the boy since he's a minor but Lt. Todd Watkins with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News the boy was aggravated with his 15-year-old brother on their trip home from Florida in the car. That's when he took out a "mutli-tool" pocket knife and stabbed his brother 3 times in the arm. Police where called for the incident and while talking with him, he told them he'd "rather be in jail, than 8 hours in the car with him".

The older brother was treated for 3 deep puncture wounds but will be fine. His brother is facing charges of aggravated battery and will be missing the family road trip for now, in a juvenile detention center.

I don't condone violence.... but I mean, I felt the same way about family trips when I was young! UGH!
