A Lake Wales man aged 82 was arrested by police for severing tires on a woman who was playing at his favorite bingo site.
WTVT-TV reports Fred Smith has been charged with criminal injury after police say he smashed an ice ax into Ethel Britt’s van during a weekly game of bingo at Lake Ashton Retirees clubhouse.
Police claim Smith flew out from the bingo hall to puncture Britt’s tires. Britt was sitting on the same chair that he normally sits on. Smith was caught on surveillance video.
Troy Schulze Smith, Lake Wales deputy chief, says Smith admitted to the crime and has expressed regret. Britt could fine Smith $ 500 for tire damages and other damages.
