Some people may not want to be in Linda Morgan’s shoes.
Investigators determined Morgan got in a verbal altercation with her daughter. Morgan tossed the shoe, an article of clothing worn on a foot, at her daughter while a deputy was there.Indian River County Sheriff’s officials arrested Morgan, 50, following the flying footwear flap at an address in the 3900 block of 46th Street, records state.
The footwear flinging allegations against Morgan recall the Eddie Murphy stand-up routine known as “Shoe Throwin’ Mothers” in which Murphy explains his mother’s skill at throwing and hitting him with a shoe following perceived infractions.
“She would carry that (expletive) like a gun,” Murphy said in the “Delirious” video from 1983. “By the time I was like 10, my mother was like Clint Eastwood with a shoe.”
Meanwhile, Indian River sheriff’s investigators found the spat between Morgan and her daughter happened when Morgan locked her daughter out of the home. The daughter forced her way in, angering Morgan.
Some might not describe Morgan as a goody two-shoes or straight-laced because the report states she made “several threatening statements” towards her daughter. The report doesn’t indicate whether the statements caused anyone to be shaking in their boots.
Morgan, of the 3900 block of 46th Street in Vero Beach, was jailed on an assault/domestic violence charge.
