KNOXVILLE , Ky., June 19 (UPI) -- A Kentucky couple won't be "forked," as investigators have decided not to press charges after they were involved in a domestic altercation in Knoxville.

On Wednesday night, officers responded to a stabbing report at the home of an unidentified couple.

When officers arrived at the home in Montgomery Village, a public housing complex, they found a man with a minor chest wound that had allegedly been inflicted by a fork.

According to a Knoxville Police Department news release, the man refused to be treated by emergency medical personnel.

Although police got conflicting stories about what exactly had happened, the fork stabbing apparently occurred during an alcohol-fueled domestic dispute. Whatever happened, the case is now closed.

"Both individuals were intoxicated and refused to prosecute," said KPD spokesman Darrell DeBusk, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. "The male was poked in the chest with a fork which resulted in a very minor injury."
