Apparently Billy Dee Williams was right: Colt 45
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Police said the mother of an elementary school student drank a 40 ounce bottle of malt liquor before brandishing a sword in her child’s school. The woman, 32, apparently intended to confront the parents of another child who had been in a spitting match with her child the previous day.
According to court records, an employee at Riverview Elementary School in Memphis reported a drunk woman armed with a sword was running through the halls of the school and had threatened to cut her.
Acting quickly, the University of California – Berkeley swooped in, bailed out the woman, and offered her tenure as a professor of Urban Studies.
