89-year-old woman arrested for keeping a kid's football thrown on her lawn


It seems the "finders keepers, losers weepers" rule may work in the playground, but not with the police.

Edna Jester, 89, has become something of a celebrity in Cincinnati this week. She isn't fond of kids throwing balls into her yard, and so the last time a football came sailing onto her lawn in the affluent neighborhood of Blue Ash, she confiscated it. She told the kids that they could have it, but later.

The boy, a junior high student, who owned the football told his dad, who told the police, who came over to Jester's house and ordered her to give back the ball.

She refused.
