Cops: Argument Over Beer Turns Into Machete Attack

TAMPA - An argument over beer turned into a machete attack over the weekend, police say. Officers received a report of an attack in progress at 1613 1/2 East 24th Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Friday. When they arrived, Ricardo Watson, 64, had been cut three times. "The officers were able to grab the defendant and take her into custody," according to a statement. The suspect is identified as Veronica Watson, 45. She and Ricardo Watson are brother and sister-in-law and have lived at the residence for several years, the statement said. Ricardo Watson was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. Veronica Watson faces aggravated battery charges.

Not cool, Veronica, not cool. Let me drop a little wisdom on ya. Bahtendah wisdom. Beer, my little machete-wielding cutie, is for sharing. Grab a couple of cold ones, hang with your peeps, shit on the neighbors in the double-wide trailer next door and ride the buzz. Machetes are not part of the equation, never will be. If and when you get bailed out, I'll give you a do-over. But lose the machete and work on your sharing. Pay attention!

PS - Where are all these machetes coming from?  And what are they used for when you're not slicing up a relative?  Is there that much jungle in Orlando that everyone in that hell-hole is whacking their way to work in the morning?
