Woman Allegedly Took Hammer to Boyfriend's Car Over Facebook 'Like'

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WJW) — A Connecticut woman is facing charges after she repeatedly bashed her boyfriend's truck with a hammer over a Facebook "like."

WTNH reports that 27-year-old Yorka McKnight awoke in a vicious rage when she saw a "like" on a Facebook post to her boyfriend that said "Happy Birthday."

The "like" came from a woman that the boyfriend cheated on McKnight with in the past.

When they arrived, officers said the truck's windshield was smashed, the driver's side was scratched and the driver's window was shattered.

The couple had been dating for 13 years and have a 9-year-old daughter together. The girl was not present at the time of the incident.

McKnight is charged with third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree breach of police.
