Bridget Powers gave her cheating boyfriend a rude awakening when she discovered him in bed with another woman: She stabbed him!
39-year-old Cheryl Marie Murphy, who is known as “Bridget the Midget” in adult films, was arrested by Las Vegas police after she got into a particularly brutal fight with her boyfriend, a bartender known as Jesse James.
Police received a call from a neighbor about a woman screaming and the sound of glass breaking in the 2800 block of South Decatur Boulevard. They arrived at the scene around 2:30 am.
According to the police report, Bridget arrived at her boyfriend’s house to find him and another woman sleeping in the same bed together. That’s when she started screaming at them, grabbed a butter knife, and stabbed Jesse in the leg.
Yes, you read that correctly. She stabbed him with a butter knife.
The other woman told police that she restrained Bridget after she witnessed her stabbing Jesse in the leg and that Bridget tried to stab her, too. But the other woman, who is 5’8″, then picked up the 3’9″ actress and threw her out of Jesse’s home.
Bridget continued screaming at her boyfriend and the other woman from outside the home, but then decided she needed to make more of an impact, so she threw a barbecue grill through the front window. How many energy drinks do you think she chugged to hulk out like that?
In a recording from the scene, Bridget can be heard screaming countless insults at her cheating boyfriend and threatening “I will f**k you up!”
After police arrived on the scene, they arrested Bridget. She is now facing felony charges of domestic battery with the use of a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, and burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon. She is being held at the Clark County Detention Center on a bond of $35,000.
Bridget Powers appeared in her first adult film in 1999 and has since been featured in more than 50 flicks. She also appeared as herself in an HBO documentary Cathouse, which focused on the Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel.
Besides her adult work, she has made appearances in mainstream films such as S.W.A.T., Tiptoes, and 8mm.
