Elderly Woman Shoots Robot, Holds L.A. Deputies at Bay for 22 Hours
By M. Alex JohnsonAn elderly woman in California shot a police robot and held authorities at bay for 22 hours after she called them to a mobile home and pulled a gun on them, sheriff's deputies said.Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said they finally took her into custody early Friday in a "peaceful resolution." They said she would be charged with assault with a deadly weapon against a firefighter.On Thursday morning, the woman called authorities and said she was having a medical emergency and needed help at a mobile home in the unincorporated town of Topanga.When deputies and paramedics showed up, the woman — who wasn't identified but who sheriff's deputies told NBC Los Angeles is 70 years old — pulled a handgun, authorities said. The initial responders retreated and called for backup, and the surrounding areas of the mobile home park were evacuated.
Then things got weird.As Angelenos watched on live television, deputies threw in a "flash bang" stun grenade, to no apparent effect. They also sent in a robot to check on the woman.She shot it.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!
Damage to the robot wasn't made public.
You can't make this shit up.
They finally talked her down without shooting her dead by some miracle but I am still chuckling over this one.
