Granny busted for kicking officer over dog doo
A 78-year-old woman from The Hague is facing criminal and financial charges for dropkicking a 38-year-old auxiliary policeman who fined her for letting her dog poop in a "no dog-poop" zone. The incident happened on Thursday at de Mient in The Hague. Police say the woman got infuriated when the officer told her she could get a fine for letting her dog relieve himself on a spot where this was not allowed. In her rage she kicked him and he suffered light bruises for which he had to be treated at a hospital.
Police officers who were nearby dashed to his aid, restrained the angered granny and took her to the police station where she was heard and later released pending charges. “The police does not tolerate verbal or physical violence against police officers or others performing a public task. We will always take action,” police PR department said in a statement. It said the woman will face criminal and financial charges for causing bodily harm. In the wake of a surge in incidents at the turn of the year, Government in January increased the punishment for violence against police officers or others performing a public task.
