Fight over diet soda lands 60-year-old woman in jail | Crime
A 60-year-old woman is spending some time behind bars after Memphis police say an argument over diet soda turned violent.
Genevie Costello, 60, was charged with domestic violence after the May 29 incident.
Investigators were called to the home in the 4500 block of Deer Lane by a man who said he was being attacked by his sister and his niece. The man told officers the trio started fighting because they ran out of diet soda.
The man, who police say had bruises on his forehead and face, told officers Genevie’s daughter bit him on the arm and Genevie tossed a remote control at him, hitting him in the head.
Genevie told police she threw the remote to protect her daughter who left the scene before police arrived.
