A caller wished for a welfare check on an older woman, who was pushing a laundry cart very slowly, and leaning on it to keep her balance. When the caller’s son asked her if she needed help, she responded she didn’t need to “bow down to his authority.” The incident occurred on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 9:37 p.m. at the cross streets of Golden Lantern and Crown Valley Parkway.
