Sixty-seven year old Charlie Bruener and his wife Donna were driving down US-27 in Alexandria, Kentucky, when they say they were cut off by 82 year old Beecher Davis. Unfortunately for the Bruener’s, they would soon find out that Mr. Davis is the most ornery old man in the great state of Kentucky.
According to the Charlie Bruener, Mr. Davis followed them down US-27 until they pulled over in a Walmart parking lot, at which point Mrs. Bruener called 911. Mr. Davis then revealed his well earned title of “Most Ornery Octogenarian in Kentucky” by getting out of his van and approaching the Bruener’s car huffing and puffing mightily.
Read on for the conclusion:
Ornery B sez: “If you call me a SOB., I’ll slug you, too.”
Mr. Bruener then said “Get away from here you SOB“, at which point Beecher “Ornery B*” Davis punched Mr. Bruener in the jaw. Squarely. In a interesting turn of events, the punch-ee, Mr. Bruener, reached for his Derringer pistol (for which he has a concealed carry permit), but the King of all that is Ornery was, naturally, unphased.
“He told me to shoot him! He pointed it right at his chest and he said shoot me! I said Mister I will shoot you if you don’t get away from me.” said Bruener. “I said get away from me you SOB nut you know like that and then I get hit again in the chin! He hit me again in the chin!” Indeed. That’s how it happened. Really.
Police arrived and booked Ornery B into the Campbell County jail on an assault charge. He was later released on bond. According to the police report, officers asked Davis why he approached Bruener’s car instead of just calling the police. Davis told officers he doesn’t like being called an SOB. His direct quote to the police officer asking the questions…
“If you call me a SOB, I’ll slug you, too.”
