The Springfield Republican Reports:
So my friends at the Republican are having a ball with this story--and I'm sure readership is W-A-Y up.
I was a little surprised that the court did not allow the more serious charge of "assault and battery with a dangerous weapon" and that is usually followed by "shod foot". After all, Susan Dawson is the Mayor of Agawam (at least until the next election anyway.)
Not often a woman does not remember what kind of shoes she has on, but the point is any shoe on a foot when that foot is repeatedly kicking a downed opponent to the head is dangerous.
That's why Billy Jack always removed his boots before taking out the bad boys.
