Brandon Hocker, 'Cannibal,' Allegedly Threatened To Eat Kentucky Cop

Clark County Jail

When Kentucky police arrested Brandon Hocker last Wednesday, he allegedly told one officer “that he was a cannibal and that he was going to put her on a plate and eat her."

The Winchester Sun reported that Hocker, 25, was being picked up for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend, Shannon Butner, several times the night before.

The 25-year-old, who was arrested on second-hand assault charges, now also faces terroristic threatening charges, too, after his alleged cannibalism claims, according to The Associated Press.

Hocker's girlfriend was brought to a local hospital for minor wounds. The officer he allegedly threatened was not injured.

According to inmate records, Hocker remains in Clark County Detention Center with no bond set.
