Amy Goldberg told her neighbor she’d had enough of her crap.

poopSpecifically, Goldberg, 57, said she was tired of her neighbor’s dog defecating in her yard, but the way Goldberg expressed her anger resulted in her arrest, according to Boca Raton police.

According to the arrest report, Goldberg’s neighbor was walking her dog just before 3 p.m. Wednesday in the 4200 block of Northwest 60th Drive. The woman’s dog did its business on Goldberg’s yard, and Goldberg came out to confront her about it.

The neighbor, 67, said she was going to clean it up, but Goldberg was yelling at her, according to the report. Frustrated, the neighbor told Goldberg if she was going to yell, Goldberg could clean it up herself.

And that’s where things got messy, police said.

Goldberg grabbed a plastic baggie, scooped up the feces, chased after her neighbor and threw the poop at her. She then went up to her neighbor and smeared the poop on her neighbor’s face and arms, according to the report.
Goldberg told police she threw the poop in her neighbor’s general direction, but never touched her. She said her neighbor habitually lets her dogs poop in her yard, and Wednesday, Goldberg said she saw no attempt by her neighbor to clean up the excrement.

Goldberg is charged with assault on an elderly person. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday and released Thursday.

Argument between two women escalated quickly, ending with one running over the other and a teenage boy, then backing up and running them over again March 16, 2015

Controversy

A 31-year-old woman charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder after running over another woman and her teenage son during an argument Sunday outside of Orlando Paintball was denied bond on Monday.

The argument started because Morrison didn’t want her ex-boyfriend to have their two children around another woman, according to her ex-boyfriend, Frankie D. Washington.

Witnesses saw Morrison yelling at Washington before arguing with a woman — later identified as Mary-Jo Wood — in the parking lot of Orlando Paintball at 7215 Rose Avenue about 5:30 p.m.

During the argument, Morrison allegedly sprayed Wood with pepper spray, according to Washington.

Morrison then ordered her two children — who are fathered by Washington — to get into her car.

That’s when Morrison got into her car, backed up, and then rammed into Wood and her son, pinning them against a wall, according to Washington.

Deputies said she reversed her vehicle and then ran into the teen boy a second time, pushing him into a nearby bench.

Wood, who said she had never met Morrison, told deputies she didn’t see when she was hit because her eyes were sore from the pepper spray. But she heard her son and other people screaming.

After the incident, Morrison drove away at a “high rate of speed,” according to Washington.

Once deputies found Morrison, she told them she sprayed the pepper spray in self-defense because a woman she doesn’t know tried to hit her with a metal “thing.”

She also said her glasses fell off her face while trying to leave the scene. So she was unable to see where she was going, according to an arrest report.

Wood and her son suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the incident.
