If you think you’re Kree Harrison or Candice Glover’s most passionate fan, think again. A couple in Pennsylvania were arrested and charged with aggravated assault after an argument over the ‘American Idol‘ season finale led to a fight that ended with them stabbing each other.

Not surprisingly, alcohol was involved in the incident. According to the York Dispatch, 48-year-old Karen Elaine Harrelson had begun drinking beer and tequila at 5AM on the morning of May 15, while her boyfriend, 57-year-old Gregory L. Stambaugh, joined in around noon, drinking beer and an entire pint of Scotch. The couple were watching the ‘Idol’ finale when they began arguing over which finalist — Harrison or Glover — should be the winner of Season 12.

The couple told police very different versions of subsequent events, with each one claiming the other one got a knife and stabbed them first. But this much is clear: police were called to the house, where they found both Harrelson and Stambaugh drunk and bleeding. They were both treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, then transported to York County Prison, charged with two counts of simple assault and one count of aggravated assault.

Harrelson remains in custody in lieu of $30,000 bail, while Stambaugh is being held until he can post $70,000 bail.

Okay, we have to ask — did they even get to see the end of the show?
