Don’t Dew This: North Carolina Woman Cited For Shooting Mountain Dew
When Gastonia Police officers got the call of shots fired this week, they probably weren’t expecting what they found. The call led them into a neighborhood where they encountered a 64-year-old woman who was shooting at bottles of Mountain Dew in her backyard. The woman admitted to shooting the soda bottles with a revolver. And the reasons? She didn’t like her father drinking them. Wouldn’t it have been easier just to pour the drink out?
“We totally understand that not everybody is a fan of the Dew but we can’t stress enough how dangerous this is!” the department said in a Facebook post. “here are much safer alternatives to disposing of beverages that you don’t like instead of using the full bottles as target practice…in your backyard… in your neighborhood… surrounded by other homes and people.”
I think we can all agree that Mountain Dew isn’t the healthiest drink choice. But Gastonia, this just isn’t it. Pour it down the sink, kill your grass or some weeds with it. But don’t be the next person in trouble for shooting Mountain Dew in your backyard.
