A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

NITTY GRITTY GRANNY

He was JUST washing his clothes.

Unfortunately, for James Penn, 25, of Mobile, Ala., he picked the home of a feisty 81-year-old woman who almost took him out with her trusty handgun when she discovered the homeless man in her laundry room.


Ethel Sanders said she heard noises in the laundry room and, with gun in hand, went to investigate. She shot Penn, who was standing in his underwear, after he came at her.

Sanders then fell to the ground and dropped the gun, which Penn picked up and pointed at her while he retrieved his clothes from the washer. He fled the scene, but was caught later at a nearby community center.

Penn was taken to University of South Alabama Medical Center where he was treated for the gunshot wound. He is expected to survive. He will be charged with first-degree burglary, police said.

Now, that's one pistol-packin' grandma!
