Police say Robert Bodiddlie Ball, 49, invited his estranged wife Janet over to his place Monday in the hopes of fixing their broken marriage.
Much to his dismay, Janet admitted that after 32 years together, she was no longer in love with him. *sob*
Instead of chuckin’ the whole thing in the fuckit buckit and moving on, Ball got all kinds of violent, reportedly punching the woman in the head and pocketing her car keys and cell phone to prevent her from leaving or calling for help.
After roughing her up a bit, Ball apparently whipped out a knife and forced her to sit and watch TV with him for a bit, repeatedly threatening to kill her if she gave him any trouble.
At about 5:00 p.m. that evening, police say Ball forced Janet to drive to Golden Corral, where he treated her to an endless buffet of less-than-fresh food and a side of food poisoning.
The pampering didn’t stop there, folks. Nope… Ball needed to get his woman some swag. Off to Walmart they went.
Ball apparently picked out a pair of shoes for Janet, because shiny stuff is, like, soooo overrated. On the way to the checkout counter, Ball reportedly reminded her of the knife in his possession, advising her to behave.
Once the shoes were purchased, Ball forced her to drive back to his home where he continued to force her to watch television.
Janet’s father, concerned about her well-being, showed up at the house around 7:00. Ball confronted the man at the front door, reportedly screaming and cursing at him. Meanwhile, Janet is trying to warn her father that Ball had a gun in the house. At that point, Ball reportedly flashed the knife in dad’s direction.
Dad, nuts of steel clanking away, paid no mind to Ball – he reached into the house and grabbed his daughter. The two jumped into dad’s car and beat a hasty retreat.
Janet later told police she glanced back to see Ball pointing a rifle in their direction. She heard a gunshot, she said, but didn’t see where the bullet went. No injuries were reported.
Ball was arrested Wednesday on charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, domestic battery and tampering with a witness. He is being held in lieu of $70,000 bail.
