#TSRCutTheFoolery: Okay #Roomies, ya’ll might want to hold onto your tea cups because this story is out of line, a 90-year-old #Tennessee woman was arrested on Thursday after threatening to kill her neighbor over leaves!
Yep #Roomies that is correct, 90-year-old #BessieBowen, who lives in Bethel Grove neighborhood in Memphis, Tennessee, pointed a gun at at her neighbor and threatened to kill her after her leaves were in Bessie’s yard. The leaves appeared to be scattered across the yard, and Bessie was not having it! According to @fox13memphis she was charged with “aggravated assault and violation of an order protection following the incident.”
According to @fox13memphis a woman, whose name has not been released to the public, in fact called police claiming Bessie pointed a gun at her and threatened to shoot her dead due to her leaves appearing in Bessie’s yard. She then went on to say that she did take pictures and videos of the alleged threat that Bessie made. Clearly granny was ’bout that life and was ready to let her neighbor know!
But catch this tea, #Roommates. This isn’t the first time that Bessie has gotten into it with her neighbor! Apparently, is very familiar with this particular neighbor. So much so, there was an order of protection in place stemming from a previous alleged assault. Although Bessie was arrested on March 14th, she has since been “released on her own recognizance.”
Another neighbor did weigh in on the incident claiming it was a shock to hear Bessie do such a thing, but they did state she has “always been serious about her yard.” That is in fact no surprise.
