An Alabama woman used a pot of hot grease to defend herself against her ex-boyfriend, who had broken into her home with a firearm to rob her.
When officers from the Decatur Police Department responded to a residence on the 2800 block of Wimberly Drive in southwest Decatur on August 1 on reports of a domestic dispute, they found Larondick Macklin, 31, suffering severe burns on his face, according to Newsweek.
On further investigation, they learned that the home belonged to Macklin's ex-girlfriend and that he had broken into the home and brandished a pistol. Police said Macklin was the "primary aggressor in the altercation."
In response, the ex-girlfriend had thrown a pot of hot grease at Macklin in self-defense, with a statement from the police confirming that the 31-year-old had "entered the victim’s house with a firearm, and the victim defended herself with a pot containing hot grease.
