In a bizarre act of revenge, a Florida woman has attacked her elderly neighbor by smearing dog feces in his face. Kali Robertson, 28, was out walking her dog early one morning in the St. Petersburg mobile home park where they both live. But what started as a typical walk took a shocking turn.
Authorities say Robertson has had past disputes with her 76-year-old neighbor. On this fateful day, a minor argument escalated when the irate woman grabbed an unsecured bag of her dog’s waste. In a rage, she pushed the bag right into the old man’s face, coating him in excrement.
Appalled neighbors alerted police to the disgusting assault. Detectives were quickly able to match the bag used in the smearing to Robertson’s dog. She was arrested and charged with battery, a felony offense. Despite pleading not guilty, the evidence of her DNA on the bag leaves little doubt of her guilt.
This is just the latest in a string of bizarre poop attacks between quarreling neighbors. In the UK, a 75-year-old woman was convicted of repeatedly terrorizing a couple. Her harassment included throwing feces at them, in addition to other dangerous behaviors.
While disputes between neighbors are unfortunately common, using excrement as a weapon takes it to a shocking new low. As this case makes its way through the courts, it serves as a warning that even small arguments can escalate into serious criminal acts if left unchecked. Nearby residents can only hope this ends the long-running poop nightmare between these two.
