Son hits mom during American Idol discussion

PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man is facing felony charges for allegedly striking his mother in the head with a sharp object hooked to a bicycle chain after she made a comment about "American Idol."

Cory K. Favreau, 24, of 200A Margaret St. was discussing the television show "American Idol" with his mother, Jan M. Chagnon, on May 24 at about 10:15 p.m., according to Plattsburgh City Court records.

At that time, Chagnon told Favreau that a particular contestant, Katharine McPhee, was going to have a successful career despite losing to another contestant, Taylor Hicks.

Favreau allegedly stood up, made a malicious comment to his mother and struck her in the head with a sharpened, cross-shaped object attached to a bicycle chain.

Court records say that Favreau and Chagnon were drinking alcohol at the time.

Chagnon was treated at CVPH Medical Center for a cut to the top of her head and was released.

Favreau was charged with second-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He was sent to Clinton County Jail, where he was still being held Wednesday for lack of $5,000 cash bail.

Chagnon had told City Police she did not want to press charges because she said her son did not intend to hurt her. Police can press charges themselves in cases where they feel it is warranted.

Favreau was convicted in Clinton County Court in 2003 of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and sentenced to a year in jail.

He is scheduled to reappear June 5 in City Court.

How awesome is that? Can't you just see it?

Seacrest: "Your American Idol is...Taylor Hicks!"

Mom: "Katharine will still have a nice career."

Son: "SOUL PATROL, BITCH!" [swings bicycle chain at mom's head]

Does this mean I can officially clock Mr. Prof with a faring hammer when he comments on how Probst has the greatest job ever?

God, yes. In fact, it's your moral duty. Anyone expressing a sentiment about Probst that could be construed as even remotely positive has it coming.

People don't fight over American Idol...they save that for Big Brother.

WTF?? That is crazy!! I've never actually watched American Idol, but I know that some people get pretty "emotional" over it. LOL!

Thank you, cassandra!

tt, I've never watched Big Brother, believe it or not. I don't get the reality shows where you just watch people hang out, like Real World or The Bachelor. I assumed BB was one of those and never checked it out.

I don't watch those types of reality shows either, but I know a whole lot about them because it seems that every last one of my co-workers watches that mess, and they have no other topic of conversation.
...Drives me insane.
