Police found trace amounts of buttermilk and flour at the crime scene and she’s since been charged with battery. Her attorney says cops are on a fishing expedition and she will be found not gill-ty.

Ten points if you can guess the actor and movie:

LOL just thinking about that scene.

Usually it’s the guy that hurts or kills the pets in such a situation. Certainly it’s not beyond the ability of women to do it, probably underreported anyway. She’s lucky they weren’t cats or dogs or higher order animals, she’d be up on charges.

People who kill the pets of others to get back at other people are extremely sick and pathetic.

Excellent.

And there's more...

She was quickly apprehended after police set up a massive dragnet and found her hiding at a girlfriend's house who was subsequently charged with harboring a fugitive.

Sobriety tests indicated both woman were intoxicated and police placed them in a drunk tank.

At her arraignment her attorney requested she be released without posting bail stating: "Your honor my client is the sole proprietor of a business. There is no need for the district attorney to carp about her alleged misdeeds. These charges are nothing more than a red herring to distract the court from the real crime which was committed by her boyfriend. Over a period of days he has been driving her crazy with his out of tune guitar playing."

The district attorney replied: "“You can tune a guitar, but you can't tuna fish. Unless of course, you play bass.”

Ruthless People.

Still trying to figure out the portable vacuum scene; Mrs. Hodar doesn’t seem appreciate it.

Whatever social disturbance happens in Stink-adena should surprise no one — it is a very blue collar place.

No animal cruelty charge?

I guess goldfish aren't "cute" enough.
