Tarpon Springs Neighbor Gets Slugged for Petting Dog, Police Say
Tampa Bay Times ^ | Apr 03, 2012

Posted on 04/07/2012 12:20:31 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Relations in the neighborhood were already strained when Michelle Sieber argued with her 69-year-old neighbor just before 7 a.m. Monday about the noise the night before, according to police.

Then Sieber's dog got out. The neighbor petted the Great Dane. Sieber warned him not to touch her dog. "What are you going to do ... hit me?" the neighbor asked, according to police.

Sieber was arrested early Monday morning for doing exactly that, police said. She punched her 69-year-old neighbor in the left shoulder, according to Tarpon Springs police, and was charged with battery on a person 65 years or older.

When police arrested Sieber, they noted that she had suffered facial injuries. When asked what happened, she told officers her mother attacked her. Then she changed her story and said her mother did not hit her. Sieber refused medical treatment.

She was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where she was being held Tuesday in lieu of $1,500 bail.

I’ll be 69 this September. With severe heart problems and other issues, I’d still punch anyone back who attacked me. It’s called self defense. She’s a woman? Women kill people too. I’d have no idea of her ability to harm someone, and I’d do what’s necessary to defend myself. My problem is, I may not last through the encounter. But then, that would be her problem...

“She punched her 69-year-old neighbor in the left shoulder”

I hope when I’m 69 I’m man enough to take a punch to the shoulder by a woman without calling the cops.

Need laws allowing 65+ seniors to shoot attackers.

Some women seem to think that they can get away with hitting men because they won't get hit back.

She was especially stupid to do it in Florida. Hitting an older person is taken lightly. That's a felony.
