Don’t come between the elderly and their favorite Bingo seat; apparently, that can really set them off. According to Fox News[1], an 82 year-old man slashed a woman’s tires for having taken the man’s favorite Bingo seat.


An elderly Florida man was arrested for slashing a woman’s tires[3] after she sat in his favorite bingo seat, according to police.

82-year-old Fred Smith was charged with criminal mischief after police say he used an ice pick to puncture two tires on 88-year-old Ethel Britt’s van.

The incident occurred during a weekly bingo game at the Lake Ashton Retirement Community Club House in Lake Wales, Florida, and was caught on surveillance video.

Police say Smith stormed out of the game and slashed the tires because Britt was sitting in a chair he usually sits in.

Smith admitted to the crime and faces having to pay $500 in tire damage and restitution to Britt.

I’ve seen petty vandalism occur for quite a few reasons, but this is the first Bingo-related vandalism I have ever seen.
