I am the first person to caution against cutting in line … in front of me! By nature yours truly is a mild-mannered type, but one lucky lady saw a different side when she cut in front of me at Han’s Market last month while I tried to get a tuna sandwich. (I love their tuna sandwiches. I don’t know what they put in them, don’t want to know, ignorance is bliss when it comes to tuna.) Suffice it to say, takedowns are a moveable feast.
A similar event happened at the Rite Aid on Fulton and Hanover Pl. last Tuesday, though instead of being taken down by a sharp tongue, the victim was taken down by a pink cell phone. According to the police report, a dispute over cutting in line took a turn for the worse when a 32-year-old woman was hit in the head with the phone. No word on who cut in front of whom, but the cell phone is still at large.
At Kings County Family Court on Wednesday, a 37-year-old man went berserk and hit three officers before being arrested.
A gang of about 10-15 thugs entered Joya on Friday night and proceeded to throw glasses wreack havoc about the place. One man was cut on the chin and hand before the pack left.
Finally, a 60-year-old woman wired $40,500 to a Leighton Peale of World Allied Advisors with instructions to invest it in precious metals. When she followed up, however, the victim was told Mr. Peale no longer worked there, and there was no record of her wire. Take it from me, it’s safer to bet on black.
Before I close, I want to say that I’ve just become the proud owner of a brand-new iPhone, so let’s see how long it takes before it gets snatched on the F line. I’ll set the over-under. And that’s this week’s blotter.
