Talk about getting in the Christmas Spirit.....
This Black Friday saw a LOT of disgusting, un-Christmas-like violence at stores. But we almost EXPECT that at places like Walmart. We don't expect it to happen when middle-aged women are shopping for arts-and-crafts.
--But that's exactly what happened on Sunday afternoon in Plantsville, Connecticut.
--55-year-old Ruth Wagner of Plantsville was at a craft fair, shopping for Christmas ornaments. As she was browsing, a vendor accused her of stealing some jewelry.
--They started yelling at each other . . . Ruth picked up a Christmas ornament made out of a seashell . . . and STABBED the vendor with it.
--She got him in the forearm. A piece of the ornament broke off inside his arm . . . and he ended up needing surgery to have it removed.
--Ruth was arrested and charged with SEVERAL felonies, including first-degree robbery, second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, sixth-degree larceny, and second-degree breach of peace.
