Diane Lewis, of Loyall, Kentucky might just be a redneck. After her son was arrested for stealing copper wiring from a apartment where he was previously evicted from, Diane showed up at the landlord's (James) Howard) convenience store to rake havoc. According to police, Diane pulled jars of pickles from the shelves and threw them around the store and through a plate glass window. She told a local TV station, "I don't know, you know. I got to my breaking point, I guess. I was pushed to my breaking point is the only thing I can say...You take momma bear and mess with a cub, she is going to bite your head off." She was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, terroristic threatening, menacing and disorderly conduct. Her 32-year-old son, James Lewis, was charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools, criminal trespassing and criminal mischief.
Sidebar: The local paper was able to speak with the store manager, and here's her side: "“She came into the store and starting cussing James saying her grandchildren were crying over their daddy being in jail. She picked up jars of pickles and began throwing them at the windows and all over the walls, busting the glass and pickles spewed all over the place. She tried to break all the windows, but only succeeded in breaking one. She then went up and down the isles pulling merchandise to the floor and breaking glass products. She was in a rage knocking everything she could to the floor. She was just out of control — wild. We were very scared during all this. We stayed behind the counter and called the proper authorities. She didn’t stop until the police arrived. We’re just glad no customers were injured during this incident.”
