My new favorite true crime story

The headline says it all: 89 year-old charged with keeping kids' ball.

According to this news report, the woman was arrested for petty theft for refusing to return a football to the neighborhood kids after the ball landed in her yard.

We all had that yard in the neighborhood, the one that we wanted to keep away from, not cut through, and definitely not knock our balls into because the old man or woman was just too mean and would hassle us. Of course that would also then be the yard most likely to be TP'd or to have yard gnomes go missing.

Calling the cops on the lady is taking the neighborhood dispute to a whole new level.
