Grandmother Stabs Boyfriend Over Alleged Monopoly Cheating

He, in turn, beat her with the ugly stick. From Keith and The Smoking Gun.

October 27, 2011--A New Mexico woman repeatedly stabbed her boyfriend after accusing him of cheating during a Monopoly game early yesterday, according to police.

Laura Chavez, 60, and her boyfriend were playing the popular board game at her Santa Fe apartment when the dispute occurred. Chavez, pictured in the mug shot above, allegedly admitted stabbing her beau with a kitchen knife.

Police reported that both Chavez and the 48-year-old victim appeared to be intoxicated.

The man, who cops found bleeding heavily from wounds on his head and right wrist, was hospitalized yesterday in stable condition. The victim told investigators that Chavez first hit him over the head with a glass bottle and then “grabbed a knife and began cutting him causing injuries to the top of his head, neck, left eyebrow and right wrist area."

Chavez went to jail, went directly to jail on a variety of charges, including aggravated battery on a household member with a deadly weapon and battery on a law enforcement officer.

She is being held in the Santa Fe county lockup in lieu of $5000 bond (or until she rolls doubles).

Chavez’s 10-year-old grandson, who had been playing with the two adults, told officers that his grandmother began to argue with the victim because she thought he “was cheating at Monopoly.” The boy, who had gone to bed before the stabbing began, did not further describe the alleged cheating.


  1. Hey, I see where she's coming from. I hate playing Monopoly.

  2. Not a huge fan myself. Takes too damn long and it's obvious pretty early on when you're screwed, then you have to spend the next hour or two takin' it up the ass.

  3. Why didn't she just do what everyone eventually does?

    Flip the board over and angrily yell, "Fuck this game!" before storming out of the room.

  4. And stabbing. My wrists get sore from all the slashing and stabbing.

  5. @ lefty

    Suuure, that's why your wrists are sore.

  6. I really hate the tokens in Monopoly. An iron, a thimble, a shoe, a wheelbarrow? WTH? Once again, it's just the man trying to keep us down.

  7. No, Cam. That's why my wrists are as strong as they are. And thanks for not making the linked picture too obscene.
