Ladies, this tactic will land you in jail, NOT with any satisfaction.
As reported in the Athens Banner Herald:
An Athens woman used a gun Tuesday to make a one-sided settlement with her estranged husband, Athens-Clarke police said.
Ben Russell, 59, of Nicholson, agreed to meet his wife about 11 a.m. at her home on Honeytree Drive to exchange marital property, police said, but Patsy Ann Russell pulled a gun and wouldn’t let her husband leave until 1:45 p.m.
During that time, the woman forced her husband – a self-employed insurance salesman – to call his girlfriend and fire her as his employee, police said.
“Then he had to agree to sell his girlfriend’s car and put the proceeds into the children’s trust fund,” Athens-Clarke police Capt. Clarence Holeman said. “That’s when she allowed him to leave.”
Ben Russell went to police headquarters on Lexington Road to make a complaint, and officers arrested Patsy Russell, also 59, on charges of aggravated assault and false imprisonment, police said.
