Insanity: Dude Charged With Assault For Pointing Leaf Blower At A Woman
"A judge in Memphis, Dan Brown, ruled that a 33-year-old man, Michael Bridgewater, can be charged with assault for pointing a leaf blower at a woman.
The alleged victim, Kelly Carraway, said she complained about grass clippings hitting her car. At that point, Bridgewater pointed the leaf blower at her `in an offensive and provocative manner,`
Apparently, he tried to blow her away. Moreover, Carraway said she was assaulted with flying debris and suffered from respiratory problems afterward."
Sometimes a leaf blower is just a leaf blower...
The "victim" alleges that Bridgewater pointed the leaf blower at her in "an offensive and provocative manner." Was the dude using the leaf blower as a phallic symbol in the same way that a rocker uses a guitar?
Carraway claims she was assaulted by flying leaves, this woman has my sympathy that must have been a very painful ordeal.
The judge and Carraway are full of hot air; the only time a dude using a leaf blower should be arrested is when he is using it at six in the morning on a Sunday.
