Man bonked with bucket lid

Published 11:15am Thursday, August 9, 2012

A man mowing the lawn at the Knollwood Cemetery south of Fergus Falls was met with unwanted feedback Tuesday, when a visitor allegedly swore at him and threw a bucket lid at his head.

The woman, who has not been identified, was apparently upset that there were weeds in the cemetery.

The man reported the incident and the sheriff’s office was able to locate and interview her. The case has been forwarded to the county attorney’s office for possible charges.

    Sounds like “entitlement” has a different meaning for the woman. She doesn’t like weeds, so she is “entitled” to attack the groundskeeper?

    I’m fairly certain no one would object to folks coming out and pulling all the weeds they wanted if they were dissatissfied with the groundskeepers’ weed removal efforts.
