Cry-Baby of the Week
Mar 22 2013
Hey, it's that time of the week where we laugh at some butthurt cry-babies again!
Cry-Baby #1: Bridgett Dixon
The incident: A woman didn't like the sound that trains make.
The appropriate response: Nothing.
The actual response: She parked her car across the tracks in an attempt to fuck up a train.
Bridgett Dixon (above left) was arrested last week in the town of Monongahela, Pennsylvania, after police found her car parked in the middle of the tracks at a level crossing (above right).
The police initially went to investigate after receiving a call that a woman was at the level crossing yelling that her car had gotten stuck on the tracks.
After investigating for, like, two seconds, the police discovered that there were no keys in the ignition and deduced that the car was, in fact, parked rather than stuck.
Her lie rumbled, Bridgett confessed that she had left the car there on purpose because she was "tired of trains going through town, blowing their whistles" while she was in the downtown area attempting to use her phone.
According to the police, Bridgett doesn't even live near the train tracks. Her entire issue was that the horns interrupt her phone calls when she is downtown, where the trains are.
Bridgett is currently out on bail, awaiting trial for charges of disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, and something called "risking a catastrophe," which sounds pretty serious.
Cry-Baby #2: Melissa Townsend
The incident: Some children were misbehaving.
The appropriate response: I don't know, it all depends on what kind of parent you are. Making them sit on a naughty step, shouting at them, grounding them... I have no idea, I'm not Supernanny.
The actual response: Their mom called the police and then, later, kicked a policeman in the balls.
The 27-year-old mother Melissa Townsend was arrested last Tuesday after calling 911 to complain about her children, aged three and one.
In a recording you can hear in the video above, Melissa is heard saying, "I need a police officer to come out and scare the shit out of my kids." She added, "They're not listening to me, and they need to learn respect."
The 911 operator informed her that this isn't a service that the police offer. And then, for reasons that aren't specified, two officers went to Melissa's home.
When they arrived, a drunken Melissa attacked them, kicking one of the policemen in the crotch "multiple times."
She was arrested and charged with child neglect and battery on a law-enforcement officer. Her children are currently staying with relatives... :(
So, which one of these drunk women overreacted the most? Let us know in this little poll thingy right here:
