BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A City of Tonawanda woman is facing criminal charges after police say she called 911 to ask how she could kill her boyfriend.
54-year-old Zelda Cotton of Delaware Street is charged with Endangering the Welfare of an Elderly Person and Criminal Possession of a Weapon.
Police responded to a home on William Street Saturday where Cotton was with her 76-year-old boyfriend. She reportedly told officers she struck him five times with a VCR tape, and was swinging a leaf blower battery at him.
Cotton was said to be intoxicated at the time and was taken into custody. Her boyfriend was not hurt.
Take it easy, lady. Christ. Chris Lane's song says it best, "drunk people do dumb things." Can you imagine being so hammered that your choices of weapon to attempt to murder your significant other was a VCR Tape (who still has those just lying around the house?!) and a gd leadblower?!?! Are you kidding?? If my girlfriend said "I'm gonna kill you" and then proceeds to go to the garage and break out a leaf blower I would laugh mySELF to death. Unreal story here. The only thing crazier than this story is the fact that this did NOT happen in Florida. Would've bet money on that one after reading the headline. - @Traceahamilton
