When it comes to ridiculous displays of rage, nothing we see on the road should surprise us at this point. Or, for that matter, the parking lot. That said, a woman in Spokane allegedly committed an act over the weekend that's destined to go down in the annals of ridiculous displays of road rage.
According to a number of reports circulating today, Spokane police have arrested Sherri Schlosser after an incident Sunday in a Home Depot parking lot in which an elderly couple got berated before the disabled wife was pepper sprayed in the face.
Police say Sherri Schlosser apparently became upset when the elderly couple stopped their car outside a Home Depot store Sunday to wait for pedestrians and to let the 72-year-old disabled wife out of the car. Police say Schlosser yelled profanities at the couple and then pepper-sprayed the wife.
According to a report from KREM, the elderly husband in the ordeal is 82, while his wife is 72. The good news is the wife was treated by firefighters at the scene and was able to return home after the assault.
The KREM reports offers slightly more detail about the pepper-spraying. According to KREM, after the elderly couple came to a stop in the Home Depot parking lot to let the pedestrians pass and allow the disabled woman to climb out of the vehicle, Schlosser allegedly totally lost her shit:
... police said Schlosser drove by, nearly hitting the elderly couple's open door, and yelled profanities at them. Investigators said Schlosser continued to confront the couple as they walked into the store, before she pulled a can of pepper spray from her purse and sprayed the woman in the face.
After allegedly pepper spraying the woman, reports indicate Schlosser entered the Home Depot and then exited using a different door. Though several customers are said to have attempted to stop her, Schlosser was able to make her getaway. However, police were able to track her down and arrest her a short time later. Schlosser was charged with third-degree assault.
