Baby, I got to get my hair done! 72yo hits speeds up to 100 mph for salon appointment.


Late for a hair appointment, a 72-year-old South Carolina woman yesterday careened across a highway at speeds in excess of 100 mph, nearly hitting another vehicle, before being collared for reckless driving. When a cop caught up to Sandra Powell’s vehicle at an intersection, she “was upset because she was late for a hair appointment,” according to a City of Union Police Department report. When Sgt. Richard Powers asked if she knew how fast she was going (in a 45 mph zone), Powell “stated yes, that she was going 100MPH.” Dashcam footage shows that Powell told Powers, “I’m on my way to get my hair cut. And I went in the wrong direction. Now I’m running late because I’m supposed to be there at 10.” After she was cuffed and placed in a police cruiser, Powell remarked, “A first for me. I guess everybody has to have a first.” Powell, pictured in the mug shot below, was booked yesterday morning into the county jail on a misdemeanor rap. A personal property receipt shows that she was carrying a green purse and $20 when busted. The name of the beauty parlor to which she was rushing is unknown.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
