A woman was struck in the head by a man who threw a 12-pound bowling bowl at her for turning down her drinks. This incident and the excuse the attacker gave is just plain sad. We’ve reported on several recent events, such as a man assaulting a woman with a frozen armadillo, and another striking his mother in the back with a holiday ham.
The South Carolina man decided to throw the bowling ball at her because she didn’t want him buying her drinks.
The strange incident happened on Sunday at the Strikers Family Sports Center while the woman was sitting on a bench at the alley she was bowling on.
Omar Sheree Stevenson picked up a 12 pound bowling ball and hurled it at her head and caused her to bleed, but luckily she wasn’t critically injured, according to the police.
She was treated at the hospital and received 7 stitches. She no skull fractures.
After witnesses told the authorities what happened, Stevenson was arrested outside the bowling alley and told officers he just lost his temper.
He did ask officers if the victim would be okay.
Now he faces attempted murder charges and was being held on $100,000 bond.
The woman’s bowling ball was made out of plastic, reactive resin, urethane or a combination of all three. Even so, it can definitely be used as a weapon. It’s really sad that someone felt the need to toss a 12-pound ball at someone who didn’t want their free drinks.
