Eleouise Adcock, a 90 year old great-grandmother in Texas, was very upset with the contractors working on the property right next door to her. They kept digging up dirt and piling it onto a barge behind the house she’s lived in for 40 years and pressuring her to sell her home and move.
Police officers were called to her property on Thursday because construction workers called and said she threatened them with the weapon. After a 4-hour standoff, Adcock surrendered and was taken to the hospital for a psychological evaluation. (She will NOT face criminal charges.)
Adcock is the last holdout in the area. All of her other neighbors have sold their property to a developer and moved.
