Could this be the BadJock Quote of the Year? “I don’t know what the issue was but the wack-job drove over her.” Keep reading.
No, it didn’t happen on the golf course, but it did happen near the horse shoe pits at the Bulow RV Resort (is that the same as a mobile home park?) in Florida, so we are going to count the driver as a bad jock.
Details on this are still sketchy, but apparently the victim, Lorain Boylan, 56, recently ended her friendship with 41-year-old Linda Pearce (mug shot right) sometime before the two were both watching the action at the park’s horse shoe pit. On St. Patrick’s Day. During the RV park’s annual party.
Yep. You can see where this one is going.
According to witnesses, Pearce publicly announced that she was “going to run this ***** over” (“bitch” seems to be the most obvious choice here, but she may also have said “geezer” or “wench”) and proceeded to do so . . . with her high powered, uh, golf cart. Boylan–who doesn’t appear to have been hurt very badly in the incident–was unable to get out of the way of the speeding golf cart and was allegedly dragged 15 yards (probably very, very slowly) before neighbors stopped the cart and got Boylan to safety then called the cops.
Pearce was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Of course, she claims that Boylan “accidentally” stepped in front of the vehicle despite witnesses who claim she boasted about what she was going to do beforehand. (And here’s the BadJocks Quote of the Year, folks.) According to witness Ron “Are We Live?” Cochran, “I don’t know what the issue was but the wack-job drove over her,” adding, “She said I’m going to run over that blank and proceeded to do it… right in front of everybody.”
Arresting officers claim Pearce was–surprise!–intoxicated when they arrested her. (My FOX Orlando – link includes great video clip)
