From the Joplin Globe:
A rural Jasper County woman is accused of pursuing her boyfriend with an ax Saturday afternoon, and damaging their trailer and truck in the process.
The woman, Pamela Caldwell, is 55 years old, and must be in pretty good shape to be totin’ and swingin’ an ax in such fashion:
According to a probable-cause affidavit filed in Jasper County Circuit Court, Caldwell’s boyfriend told sheriff’s deputies that she struck their trailer with an ax and then came after him with it during an argument. He told deputies that he managed to keep their truck between him and her, but she swung the ax and smashed the vehicle’s windshield.
Caldwell reportedly told deputies that her boyfriend had gone into their residence to get a beer. She was mad at him, told him he couldn’t have the beer and tried to block his way as he was coming back out of the home, she reportedly told the deputies.
Maybe next time the guy will ax first, before he gets a beer.
