We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...
57-year-old Patricia Carlson of Kimberly, who was driving her car a week ago Wednesday near East Kennedy Avenue and Washington Street in Kimberly where Outagamie County road crews were busy laying asphalt in a clearly marked construction zone. There were even two flag operators directing traffic around the roadwork.
But that did not deter Ms. Carlson, who passed right by the first flag operator and continued on until she was stopped by the second who literally stood in front of her car and told her, "You can't drive through here."
But our intrepid and determined motorist just got madder still, yelled at the worker, stepped on the gas and hit the flagwoman with her car. She then jumped out of the way as Carlson proceeded to drive over the freshly laid asphalt and then fled the scene...but not before workers got her license plate number.
The female worker suffered bruises to her legs and Carlson faces several charges.
For possibly exchanging the orange construction barrels she ignored for an orange jump suit she won't be able to,
for proving that fines go up in work zones but IQ points apparently do just the opposite and
for putting the ASS into Asphalt,
we are proud to name.... 57-year-old Patricia Carlson of Kimberly, who is the dip in the Dip Ahead sign on her street, as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week.
