Bowling argument leads to gunplay threat

A disagreement while bowling led one woman to threaten to shoot an employee of a North Augusta bowling alley, according to an incident report.

The employee at Northside Lanes, 1745 Georgia Avenue, told officers the lane where four women were bowling malfunctioned  around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The problem was corrected but the women insisted that the business refund their money.

After the employee explained that the store policy will not allow a refund, one woman grew angry, called the employee names and threw her bowling shoes at him, police said.

In the parking lot, police said, one of the women threatened to come back and shoot the employee.

Authorities were unable to locate the woman, but found their first names on their bowling form.

They don't like the policy

They don't like the policy then they can go somewhere else. Some people out there don't know the difference between a BMW and a slice of Apple Pie.

"Spare me!" pleaded the

"Spare me!" pleaded the potential victim who was pinned to the wall out in the alley. "Don't strike me! If I die, no one can fill my shoes. Just let me split."
"Are you trying to frame me?" asked the robber, reaching into his pocket. "You don't have the [large heavy spherical objects used in bowling] to do that!"
[If I think of more, I'll be back -- Dixieman]

Why wouldn't the business

Why wouldn't the business give them a refund? Bad form! They would have spared themselves all this bad publicity if they would have just had some foresight regarding their customers. It would have been been the gracious thing to do and paid off in good customer relations. I won't ever go bowling there, that's for sure, if that's their policy.

If the FBI is investigating,

If the FBI is investigating, they are responsible of getting the warrants.

The City of N.A. would not

The City of N.A. would not cooperate with the FBI to get the Warrant. The FBI cannot do anything if the community will not cooperate. The ID thief told me over the phone the reason why he stole my ID is i lived in N.A. and he already knew they would not cooperate with the FBI on any case that involved the city paying to extradite the thief. He got my ID when i reported a bug vacuum stolen and the N.A. police said they had to have my SS# even though the state had issued me a special license at my request to protect my unusually large lines of credit. N.A.D.P.S. entered my SS# into their computer and he stole it from them when they left it hooked up to the internet all the time.

Rrright Dixieman ha ahhah I

Rrright Dixieman ha ahhah
I think i've given N.A. enough info for one lifetime. Thank you for offering nadps, though. I'm sure your heart is in the right place. My Brother was a Cop, my Nephew was a cop. We have our own resources and that guy stole from someone else & they put him away with a little help from me of course. I don't ever seek revenge or anything. That's my bosses job and he has more resources than i do. Just remember ANYONE giving ANYONE, even a cop their SS# needs to understand that It will go into a computor. Simple programs like TimBuk2 can be loaded remotely and POOF all YOUR credit is GONE. But You can do one thing for me. Ask the computor guy to update his Most Wanted. One of them has already been captured and new ones that we are looking for need to be posted so i can get them on TV and into a nice comfy jail cell. Oh and how's the "manhunt" going for the woman Bowler that "threatened" gunplay? Any news on her?

If you'er not seeking revenge, stop talking bad about them. They can't pay for things unless the City Council members aprove it.
