Still Waters Posted December 3, 2022 #1 Share Posted December 3, 2022 (IP: Staff) · Police in the US state of Alabama have arrested an 82-year-old woman over an outstanding rubbish bill. Martha Louis Menefield said she was confused as officers handcuffed her and arrested her on Sunday. The amount that led to her arrest was reportedly $77.80 (£63.28). In a statement on Facebook, City of Valley police said they treated Ms Menefield respectfully and that they had notified her several times that she had not paid the bill for three months. "Ms Menefield was treated respectfully by our officers in the performance of their duties and was released on a bond as prescribed by the violation," said Mike Reynolds, police chief for the City of Valley in Alabama, in the statement, which has drawn significant criticism online. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-63829128 3 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
