"Driver’s crash course damages Springfield Safeway, police say"

"Noella Yvonne Fay, 43, of Glenwood had been at the store about 4 p.m. Tuesday and tried to buy $2,200 worth of gift cards, according to Springfield police. Safeway sells gift cards that can be used at a variety of retailers, including Starbucks, Nordstrom and iTunes."
But when Fay’s check bounced, she was refused the sale, which prompted her to become angry and leave the store, police said.

At 12:23 a.m. Wednesday, Fay allegedly returned and parked her sport utility vehicle in front of the store’s west doors, blocking the entrance. She was yelling about wanting her gift cards, police said.

A Safeway employee told Fay she needed to move her vehicle before they could discuss the gift card issue any further. It was then, police said, that Fay drove her sport utility vehicle through the west side of the store.

Fay drove the Tahoe down an aisle almost to the back of the store, police said. She then allegedly reversed the SUV back to the front of the aisle, turned the car toward the deli and drove between the aisle ends and the checkstands. She then drove the vehicle out the east doors and into the parking lot, police said.

She last was seen driving southbound on Pioneer Parkway West. (more)

Well, at least this wasn't a story about how a Tahoe destroyed a Safeway all by its self.

Yea, the SUV has apparently become safe again.

How the fuck do you get to that point? At what point do you say, "Okay my check bounced. Gosh, I wonder why. Hmmm, I think I'll take my SUV and ram it through the store. Yeah, that's the ticket."

When some people don't get what they think they should, they often lash out at whoever they can and just want to burn it all down. Yea, it's crazy, but man, that must feel good.

I couldn't get that Cee Lo song out of my head when it first came out, and now I can't stop singing this girl's ba bup bup ba ba. Nice cover.

A year in jail would not be a bad idea. She's clearly not competent to get through the day on her own. Probably has some tads, though, and no one to care for them if she's gone.
