Two Florida brothers have been arrested after starting a brawl outside a Girl Scout cookie stand this week. I told you Thin Mints make people crazy!
Daniel Kennedy, his brother and their mother, Erin, told deputies they confronted the Girl Scout team at the cookie table over $20 they said Thomas Ketchum’s daughter owed them. Ketchum’s 47-year-old wife, Lisa, and another Palm Coast woman were present, and told the Kennedy family they could not pay them. That’s when the Kennedys demanded to be paid in cookies instead.
Hold out for the S-mores! Hold out for the S’mores!
When the Scout leaders refused, they told deputies the Kennedy brothers began snatching boxes of cookies, overturning the table and “destroying” the cookie stand.
Lisa Ketchum said Daniel Kennedy then began throwing punches. That’s when her husband emerged from the store and grabbed the brothers’ shopping cart to keep them from leaving before officers arrived. He said Daniel Kennedy pushed him away and began punching him. Thomas Ketchum suffered a sprained neck and shoulder and was taken to Florida Hospital Flagler to be treated.
I’m confused. Why weren’t any of the Girl Scouts carrying Swiss army knives? “Be Prepared” my ass.
