A Connecticut man is charged with threatening behavior after allegedly stabbing a watermelon with a butcher knife and leaving it on a counter for a woman to see.

The woman said Carmine Cervellino was using "passive aggressive" actions to scare her because he was angry, according to a Thomaston, Conn., police report, The (Torrington, Conn.) Register Citizen reports.

The woman had gone to police on July 4 after she claimed she found drugs in Cervellino's tool box. When she returned home, she says Cervellino walked in and wordlessly cut up the watermelon on a kitchen-counter top, The Register Citizen reports.

Police did not charge Cervellino, 49, with any drug offense. He faces second-degree charges of threatening and disorderly conduct.
