Gastonia, NC – I know there are a ton of updates going on regarding Luka Magnotta and the Miami face-eater, but a woman was arrested Sunday afternoon after she got into an argument with a man over groceries and began beating him with her prosthetic leg.
Police say the unnamed woman showed up at the home of 29-year-old Charles Talbert to confront him about continually harassing her, over the last two days, about going to the grocery store.
An argument ensued that got so heated that the woman reportedly leaped out of her wheelchair and struck Talbert in the face and chest. Not content with just beating him with her fists, the woman removed her prosthetic leg and began beating Talbert with that as well.
Talbert wasn’t seriously injured in the attack, but he reported that his cellphone and glasses suffered an estimated $300 in damages. The woman didn’t fare as well and was taken to the hospital after witnesses at the scene pulled her off Talbert and inadvertently pulled her dialysis tube from her neck.
The woman told police the attack was not without provocation, and that she only attacked Talbert after he punched her. At this point no criminal charges have been filed.
Aside from a wheelchair bound woman with a prosthetic leg and a dialysis tube in her neck leaping up and beating Talbert, I’d like to know why he needs a wheelchair bound woman with a prosthetic leg and a dialysis tube in her neck to get his ass groceries.
I’ll continue to provide updates on this breaking news out of G-Town while all the other sites jump on the crime bandwagon with their updates on the Luke Magnotta and Eugene Rudy cases.
But if you’re dying to keep up with those two boring stories, I’d stick with our articles on Magnotta (article and forum) and Rudy (article and forum). Lots of conversation, information and continual updates.Tags: Assault, Charles Talbert, Crime, groceries, North Carolina, prosthetic leg, wheelchair
