In a WTF moment from across the pond, a knife-wielding drunk woman went on a Friday the 13th bender before terrorizing an entire neighborhood in a blacked-out stupor.
From GazetteLive UK:
There were shades of the classic horror film when Maureen Dunn embarked on her rampage in Thorntree.
In the film, scary mask-clad character Jason Vorhees targets campers with his machete.
However, Dunn claimed she was only carrying her blade because she had drunkenly mistook it for her mobile.
“She was extremely drunk,” claimed a probation worker.
Teesside Magistrates’ Court heard the 30-year-old had been on a bender with a pal when she sparked terror in Barrington Crescent back in October.
“There were 10 to 15 people in the street at the time running away from her,” said prosecutor Lynne Dalton.
“One of them was a child of about 12 running away, shouting ‘she’s got a knife!’”
At Tuesday’s court hearing, the Loxley Road lout admitted using threatening behaviour and possessing a knife.
In mitigation, it was claimed Dunn had no intention of harming anyone.
It was also said that she couldn’t remember a thing.
There is drunk, and then there is terrorize an entire neighborhood with a knife drunk. Don’t get terrorize an entire neighborhood with a knife drunk. If you did this in the States you’d be likely to get shot.
