Sometimes, there are violent rampages that just go uncovered by the mainstream press. Such is the case in Steven Point, Wisconsin where a 41 year-old woman is in jail after going on a blow gun spree downtown.
The Stevens Point Journal reports that police got a report at 9 p.m. Wednesday from a 25-year-old woman who said she was walking downtown when she felt something hit her chest. In the next half hour, three more people made similar reports. None were seriously injured.
One of the victims reported she saw the dart shot from a pipe sticking out the window of a black minivan. Police pulled the vehicle over at 9:30 p.m. and found a blow gun, a slingshot and a bucket of rocks inside.
The best part? When the woman was arrested and asked WHY she was shooting people with a blowgun, she said “She just liked to hear people say ‘ouch.’ ” Hence the slingshot and rocks for phase two of her decidedly un-deadly plan.
