Joan Brewster Jail Booking Report
Donald Smith Jail Booking Report
Hudson, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - The Weekly Vice, along with much of the news wire is still celebrating Thanksgiving.... and so there's not much to report on going into Monday. So to commemorate the holiday, we thought we'd share a Thanksgiving story...... Weekly Vice Style.
Meet Elizabeth Smith, Donald Smith, Tristan Smith and Joan Brewster.
Elizabeth, 21, wanted to fix the perfect Thanksgiving meal, so she began preparing everything the night before and asked her father-in-law, Donald Smith, to wake her up the next morning so she could get an early start stuffing the turkey for the long awaited feast.
Instead, she awoke about 7 a.m. to find Donald Smith, 49, stuffing the turkey with celery (yep guys can be stupid that way).
To make matters worse, Elizabeth's husband, Tristan Smith, is allergic to celery.... Yes, the Thanksgiving meal was ruined, and so Elizabeth hung her head to cry....
Donald Smith might have apologized at this point.. Instead, he decided he'd blame Elizabeth and take to yelling at her for his mistake. Nice huh?
That's when Elizabeth's husband stepped in and said "you're not going to step in my wife's face."
And that's when all hell broke loose.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, a brawl broke out.... and soon, the fight moved into the bedroom where Elizabeth and Tristan's 3 and 5-year-old children were still sleeping. The fight escalated when the pushing and shoving involved Elizabeth and Tristan's kids.
As father and son continued to brawl, Tristan's mother, Joan Brewster, became involved - Scratching Elizabeth until she bled and pulling her hair.
Father attacking son and mother attacking daughter-in-law..... all because one man didn't have the foggiest clue how to stuff a turkey.
When deputies finally sorted things out, two arrests were made Thanksgiving morning.
Donald Smith and Joan Brewster were booked into the Pasco County Jail on charges of domestic battery. They were both released without bail Friday afternoon.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
So what is the lesson here? When a woman asks you to wake her up for Thanksgiving, don't be a Donald. Let her tell you what she needs and then do it.
