RABE SHOT: He Slashes Her Tires for Sitting in His Bingo Chair!
It was like any other weekly bingo game at the Lake Ashton Club House, except that when 82-year-old Fred Smith walked in, he saw the birthday gal, 88-year-old Ethel Britt, sitting in his chair, and that's when the trouble began!
She was sitting in his chair and that would. Not. Stand!
So he left the bingo hall. He found an ice pick. And he slashed her tires! And then, when police got there, he was charged with criminal mischief.
"I didn't think anyone would be low enough to do that to my car because I didn't know I had any enemies in my life,” she said. “I thought everybody was my friend, but undoubtedly I have one enemy.”
The police say he fessed up, he regretted doing it, and is embarrassed...and that Ethel has no hard feelings, but is still puzzled...
"I'm not mad, no. I would like to have my tires paid for because that took every dime I had in the bank," she added.
