A pox upon paintballer

Posted on Saturday, May 3, 2008 by No comments yet

This stinks.  From Kathleen in Burlington’s Old North End today…

Biking back from a dinner at the Sheraton this evening, I was shot with a paint ball gun from a moving car. It was a red 4 door. Anyone had similar experiences? Suffice to say, it was frightening and ruined both my jacket and my good mood. It was too dark to get a license plate number, though I really would have liked to get it.

So, cyclists beware! Being unexpectedly shot with a paint ball gun is painful and dangerous. I hope whoever did this gets caught or a case of leprosy.

This is the first time that Front Porch Forum has been used to alert neighbors to a threat posed by marauding paintballers.
