"She's always been serious about her yard. I never had a problem with her. I never seen or heard her do anything like that. I hope they don't send her to jail.”

WOMAN WAS ARRESTED AT THE AGE OF 90

What makes this story trully extraordinary is that the aggressor, in this case, is a 90-year.old Tennessee woman called Bessie Bowen.

Bowen was charged with aggravated assault and violation of an order of protection, which indicates that the incident was the culmination of an ongoing feud between the two women.

ORDER OF PROTECTION WAS IN PLACE AFTER PREVIOUS ASSAULT

MEMPHIS POLICE DID NOT FIND THE GUN

With Bowen's consent, the Memphis Police searched her house for the weapon but found only the holster. The existence of the gun is believed to be confirmed by the neighbor's video of Bowden brandishing the weapon.

FACING JAIL TIME FOR AGGRAVATED ASSAULT

The nonagenarian was arrested and later released on her own recognizance, but she may be sentenced to jail time if convicted on a weapon's charge, even at her advanced age.,

Other neighbors have expressed their concern, and hope that the courts will show leniency in consideration for Bowen's advanced age.

Recently, nonagenarians have been hitting the headlines for running afoul of the law, and Bessie Bowen joins the ranks of elderly "criminals."

Williams didn’t press any charges against her grandmother, but Police was obliged to arrest the 90-year-old woman to follow procedure. Hattie Reynolds has been released and is back home.

The rise in crimes reportedly perpetrated by, or against nonagenarians is on the rise due to the incresing lengevity of the US population.
