Look out! Woman tries to run over decorating ex


CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — State police say holiday music was blaring from a Pennsylvania woman’s car as she tore up the yard of her ex-boyfriend’s home, nearly running the man and his family over.

Forty-seven-year-old Mary Jo Smith was charged Tuesday with multiple offenses stemming from Monday’s incident.

Alan McCutcheon says he was setting up a Christmas light display outside of his Fayette County home when Smith yelled “Merry Christmas” and made several passes through his yard.

State police say Smith attempted to hit the 64-year-old along with his wife and adult daughter. No one was injured.

The joyride caused more than $500 in damage, leaving behind tire tracks and a trail of broken lights and decorations.
