Call the Doctor, Call the Nurse: Assault with a Frothy Weapon on the Lady without the Alligator Purse
And OF COURSE it’s in Palo Alto! Thanks very much to Burbed reader PKamp3 for this one!
Purse flies into vehicle after altercation in downtown Palo Alto
by Sue Dremann, Palo Alto Weekly Staff
A woman who was struck with a milkshake and angrily threw her purse at a vehicle full of teenagers lost $2,000 after the handbag flew into the open vehicle window, Palo Alto police said Monday.
The incident started Sunday, June 24, just before midnight, Sgt. Brian Philip said. The woman was walking east on University Avenue near Rudy’s Pub when a white Range Rover full of male teenagers driving recklessly southbound on High Street approached.
Could this incident have any more “Yup, this is definitely Palo Alto” touches? A Range Rover full of rowdy teens and an alligator purse with two thousand in cash? Too bad it doesn’t mention whether the milkshake was garnished with Madagascar vanilla bean shavings.
This story was picked up by NBC Bay Area and even nationally, but there isn’t anything new in either of those stories. Miss Lucy, reached on her belled steamboat enroute to Heaven, says to be sure to read the comments in the Palo Alto Online story.
Oh yeah, and this is definitely an Open Thread.
