Patrick’s thug-ish Myspace
Elyria, OH–Patrick Kostal, 18, and his little gang of thieves picked on the wrong old lady. When they busted in to Ellen Basinski’s house and demanded money, she got pissed and Patrick got PWNED!
One of the suspects shoveled Ellen’s driveway a few weeks ago and after she handed him a big tip, the kid assumed the family was loaded. So, they hatched a plan to return to the home and rob it.
Ellen, 70, was on the phone with her husband, Judge David Basinski, from the Larain County Family Court, when she noticed 4 young boys hanging out in her driveway. ‘David, what are those boys doing in our driveway?’ she wondered. In the next instant, the boys barged into the home, yelling, ‘Give me your money!’ Needless to say, Ellen’s husband freaked out, told his secretary to call 911, and bailed out of the office to head for home.
Meanwhile, one of the boys picked up Ellen’s purse and dumped out the contents. This did not sit well with Ellen. ‘Now, my purse is like Fibber McGee’s Closet, it’s got everything in there. I got very angry.’ She grabbed a 5-quart saucepan and whacked the kid right in the head. The kid looked up at her and said, ‘Lady, why did you do that?’ She answered the little punk with another whack to the head. Another of the brats threw a bottle of Jack Daniels at Ellen as a distraction…it landed on her foot.
Finally realizing that this woman wasn’t intimidated by them, the kids high- tailed it out of the house. They didn’t get far…the neighborhood watch alerted police as to which direction the kids ran.
Police arrested Patrick Kostal, 18, and three juveniles, ages 17, 16 and 15. All four are from Elyria and were charged with a felony count of aggravated burglary.
As for Ellen? She’s fine…just upset that she had to turn over her favorite saucepan as evidence.
