A young British woman stabbed her boyfriend in the shoulder as a punishment for eating all of her potato chips.

Her boyfriend managed to escape after an ambulance team rescued him, while the woman was arrested and sent to prison.

According to details published by The Daily Mail, 34-year-old Diane Margaret Clayton, who lives in the town of Blackburn, assaulted her boyfriend Simon Hill while they were at a third friend’s home.

When Clayton discovered that Hill ate all the potato chips without leaving her any, she picked up a knife from the kitchen and stabbed him multiple times in the shoulder, British press reported.

Clayton admitted to committing assault in court, and pled guilty, receiving a 6-month prison sentence.

Prosecutor Parveen Akhtar said: 'Simon Hill ate them all and that caused her to get angry. She was seen to slap him across the face before leaving the room. She picked up a knife in the kitchen and then stabbed him, causing a superficial injury.'

The court ordered Clayton to pay a £115 fine, and jailed her for 26 weeks.
