It’s March, and for most of us that means getting ready for things like spring break and losing extra weight to avoid looking like Jabba the Hutt in the ol’ bathing suits. Unfortunately, those of you living in the Northeastern United States are likely wondering when you will ever see grass again after a surprise snowstorm cropped up last week.
Unexpected weather events can throw a serious monkey wrench in the day and caused a small frustrations to quickly blossom into big ones. For Haley Becker and Pauline Covine of Schuylkill County, Pa., those pent-up aggressions took the form of a parking spot.
According to PennLive, Becker put a lot of elbow grease into clearing off a snow covered parking spot by her house but before she could enjoy the fruits of her labor, Covine’s hubby took the spot. When he refused to move his vehicle after learning of Becker’s hard work, tensions rose. Pauline then inserted herself into the discussion and soon a heated argument became an altercation with hair pulling, slaps, kicks, and assorted mayhem.
The altercation grew to such an extent that police had to be called out to pry the women apart, and they were both arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
It is not clear what comes next for these two parking spot warriors, but something is telling us plea deals and maybe a fine or two will punctuate the brouhaha.
This is not by any stretch of the imagination the dumbest thing two people have ever been arrested fighting over. Surprisingly, this is not even the first time that a couple of women have been arrested for fighting over a parking space, nor is it the most volatile.
For some recent history, we turn to this Fox LA report from November 2016 in which a pair of women first went at it woman-o y woman-o before jumping in their cars and doing an impromptu demolition derby right there in front of a South Western Avenue business. The full video was caught on YouTube, and quickly went viral.
Also surprisingly, neither altercation occurred in New York City, which, everyone knows, is where parking spots go to die.
