Police: Woman jailed after slipper-slapping granddaughter
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.
A 95-year-old Florida woman landed in jail after calling police for help during an argument with her defiant granddaughter.
Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri tells the Daytona Beach News-Journal that Hattie Reynolds probably wasn’t a threat, but her admission of slapping her granddaughter in the face with a slipper qualified as domestic violence.
An arrest report says Reynolds told police Saturday that she wanted 46-year-old Janeen Williams out of her house because she was in bed soaking up the air conditioning Reynolds pays for. When Williams began screaming and swearing at her, Reynolds said she slapped her with the slipper.
Police handcuffed Reynolds and took her to jail for the night. Records show a judge released her on her own recognizance.
A lawyer wasn’t listed on records.
Blind, howling pug’s apology to neighbor makes noise online
A Pittsburgh pug’s apology for his separation anxiety-induced howling is making some noise.
The 11-year-old dog named Charleston Chew and his owner Sharla Wilson just moved into a new apartment.
She tells KDKA-TV Charleston is nearly blind and since his vision started going, his separation anxiety ramped up.
Since the move, he’s been bumping into walls and will meander into a corner and start howling until she rescues him.
So Wilson wrote up an apology from Charleston and taped it to a neighbor’s door. It explains he’s old and very sorry for his howling.
Neighbor Megan Jones snapped a photo of the note and posted it on Twitter saying “You can howl all you want Charleston, honey!’”
The tweet has gotten more than 450,000 likes as of May 11 and launched his internet fame.
