Bases Out and the Batter is Loaded

Police in the Washington County, Pa., borough of Charleroi were called to a home on a report of a disturbance. Jeffrey Newstrom, 21, reported that his mother came home “highly intoxicated” and started an argument. As he gathered his things to leave, Linda Lee Newstrom, 49, allegedly swung at him with a baseball bat, but missed (strike one!). She swung again and missed (strike two!), but on her third try she “connected,” he said. She admitted hitting him, police say, telling responding officers, “I brought him into this world and I’ll take him out of this world.” She was arrested and charged with assault, reckless endangerment, harassment, and disorderly conduct. (RC/Washington Observer-Reporter) ...And aggravated use of a tired cliche.
