Woman Shoots at a Man for Taking a Mango
Christopher Richey was driving with his wife when he spotted the pristine mango. “I wouldn’t even have turned around for it if it wasn’t a good mango,” Richey said. After he had the mango, he said the homeowner drove up, accused him of stealing mangoes from her yard and threatened to shoot him. Josefina Tometich, 64, allegedly went into her home, returned with a .22 caliber BB gun, which she used to shoot out the rear window of Richey’s truck. Tometich’s family says “no trespassing” signs are on the property, and they’ll put up more, to deter mango thieves. But Richey maintains the mango he saw was in the roadway, and therefore free for the taking. In the end, he and his wife left without any mangoes. The couple called 911 and deputies later found a pellet gun inside of Tometich’s home. She was arrested and later released a few hours later on a $7,500 bond. Get more here.
