Crystal Senger stopped at a convenience store in Bismarck, North Dakota to buy pop and cigarettes, and she saw the clerk being choked in a robbery attempt. She ran to call for help. Then she started throwing bananas.
Senger, 19, said she grew up playing organized baseball, and used those skills to pelt the suspect in the head with every banana she threw, from about 10 feet away.
“I was seven-for-seven,” Senger said in a telephone interview Thursday. “They were green bananas — not the ripe mushy ones — so they hurt.”
How long before Sen. Barbara Boxer introduces legislation to impose a 5 day waiting period for banana purchases?
