LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. — An Alabama teenager was arrested Thursday after he followed through on a bizarre threat to kill his mother’s chickens unless she mended the relationship between him and his girlfriend.

Haden Smith, 18, was arrested Thursday and charged with domestic violence third degree and criminal mischief.

Deputies say the situation started when Smith texted his mother, threatening to kill one of her chickens every 15 minutes until she contacted his girlfriend’s parents and attempted to mend their broken relationship.

Smith gave his mother a deadline of noon before he started to kill the chickens. He also threatened to burn his mother’s house down, kill any deputies that arrived on the scene, and kill himself, according to the sheriff’s office.

Smith then began sending his mother picture messages of each chicken he killed at 15 minute intervals, killing six in total before he was arrested, deputies say.

There’s no word on Smith’s current relationship status.
