'Judge Judy' Sparks Hammer Attack‘Judge Judy’ Sparks Hammer Attack, Janet Ann Knowles apparently doesn’t like Judge Judy. The 62-year-old Jupiter woman was arrested Sunday on aggravated battery charges after she hit a 65-year-old man on the head with a hammer after she got “upset with Judge Judy,” according to a police report obtained by the Palm Beach Post.

According to the report, the man was sitting on his recliner watching the judge’s show when Knowles lost her cool and attacked him with the hammer.

When officers responded to the home, they found the unnamed victim holding bloody paper towels to his head, where he’d sustained a large cut, the report said.

Knowles told the officers she was upset “Judge Judy” was on the TV and became “mad” and hit the man with the hammer, the report said.

The report said Knowles had trouble holding a conversation and started talking about a neighbor and what the neighbor was wearing.

Knowles was arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County jail, where she remains held without bond. It was unknown whether she has an attorney.

The victim, whose relationship to Knowles was unknown, was treated for his injuries at the scene.
