GILLETTE (WNE) —A 90-year-old woman previously accused of hitting her son with a cattle prod and putting honey on his doorknob to “sweeten” him up has been ticketed for allegedly vandalizing signs on his property.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to the residence on Marquis Court when a 60-year-old man reported suspecting his mother of spray painting a street sign on his property and stealing a “dead end” sign.
The 90-year-old admitted to spray painting the street sign but denied stealing the other, said Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds.
She told deputies that she did not like the sign and didn’t want it up on the property they share in two separate residences, “so she spray painted it,” Reynolds said.
The street sign is valued at about $800. Deputies ticketed the 90-year-old for destruction of property.
This is the third run-in the woman has had with the law this year.
On May 11, the woman was ticketed for destruction of property after putting honey on her son’s door to “sweeten” him up. She admitted to putting honey on the door handle.
Her son reported that she had put honey on his door and threw a yard light into his flower bed. The man said she has been trespassed from most of his property and is only allowed on a small piece of the land.
Three days later, the man called the Sheriff’s Office again, reporting that his mom had hit him and his wife with a cattle prod after the mother was confronted about opening a gate to the property.
She was ticketed for unlawful contact.
