This news story has one of those thug life videos playing in my head. An 82-year-old Florida man got himself arrested after slashing a lady’s tires. Why? Because she was sitting in HIS seat in the bingo hall. I suppose we can all be possessive over our favorite spot at bingo but this takes the cake.

The mad bingo player, Fred Smith, was slapped with a criminal mischief charge on Monday, May 25th after jabbing 88-year-old Ethel Britt’s van tires with an ice pick.

The incident took place during a weekly bingo game at the Lake Ashton Retirement Community Club House and police say that Smith headed out to Britt’s van after spotting her in his chair. Unfortunately for him, the sordid crime was caught on the surveillance cameras.

Lake Wales Deputy Chief Troy Schulze Smith said that Smith admitted to stabbing the tires and was remorseful. As sorry as he may be, Smith must now pay $500 in tire damage, restitution and has been banned from bingo at the retirement home.
